PanARMENIAN.Net - Head of Atomic Energy Organization Ali Akbar Salehi said that Iran as an advanced country in West Asia which pioneers introducing and developing radio-medicines is presently sending the drugs to 15 world countries, IRNA reports.

He stressed that 15,000-dollar worth drug is being given to patients for free.

Elsewhere in his remarks, Salehi referred to enemies' attempts to sabotage Iran's radio-medicine production by sanctions.

He said though enemies claim that they have nothing to do with radio-medicines, they in practice stop planes from carrying them to Iran or they impose sanctions on the companies which produce these drugs.

Iran will be able to even export radio-medicine to foreign countries once the project, labeled as GMP, becomes operational, the official reiterated.
