Jordan pharmacists to ship medicines to Iraq
Jordan, Politics, 12/30/1998
Jordanian pharmacists said on Tuesday they intend to ship drugs and medical equipment to Iraq.
The Jordanian pharmacists, whose members own 1,600 pharmacies and 12 medicine factories will on Monday dispatch three trucks to Iraq carrying "large shipments," according to the chairman of the group, Ramadan Abdul Issa.
Issa added that the Jordanian authorities may prevent the truck from crossing the border into Iraq, noting that "if that happens, the trucks will come back."
Issa went on that the association has decided to sell its drugs in Iraq, at low prices, without "getting approval from the UN sanctions committee."
He continued the association has asked all drug stores, factories and medical equipment shops in Jordan to contribute to the shipments. He continued: "We have taken this measure to support and back the Iraqi people, who have suffered the unjust embargo for eight years."
