After the polio eradication program was initiated in 1988 by the WHO, the number of polio cases abruptly decreased. In 1988, polio paralyzed nearly 350,000 children annually worldwide while in 2007 just 1,360 cases were reported. Polio immunization in Iran since 1991 was based on high routine immunization coverage, robust Acute Flaccid Paralysis surveillance system and high quality supplementary immunization activities that saw the number of reported cases decrease from 50 to zero in 2001. Iran has been polio free since 2001. However, as poliomyelitis in Afghanistan and Pakistan (two neighboring countries of Iran) is endemic and due to the large number of people traveling to Iran from these countries, the risk of polio importation and re-emergence of wild polio virus remained very high. The last laboratory-confirmed indigenous polio case was reported in 1997.

The new vice president echoed his boss's hostile rhetoric, claiming that the nuclear deal between Iran and the six world powers, including the US, had given Iranadditional resources” to “destabilize” the region. Dehqan, however, rejected the allegations and said, “The entire world has acknowledged that terrorism and the Daesh Takfiri terrorist group are currently the biggest threats to regional and international security.” He said US President Donald Trump has also confirmed that the former administration of President Barack Obama had founded the Daesh terrorist group in the Middle East. Now the world must judge whether Iran, which has fully engaged in a war against terrorism and is itself a victim of this vicious phenomenon, can be regarded as a threat, Dehqan said. “Nations in the world and the region, particularly the Palestinian people, will never forget the brutal and inhumane crimes of the [Israeli] regime over the past 60 years and regard this regime as the main reason behind war, insecurity, terror and crimes in the region,” Dehqan said.

Could the Foreign Secretary confirmed to me that when he met with the Secretary You will know very well that this government did not support the travel measures that were introduced by the executive order. We didn't think they were something that we would comment to this house and it wasn't the kind of policy that we would like to see enacted in this country. We made that few very clear to our friends in America and it was by engaging constructional league with the White House and with others that we were able to secure the important clarification, that it would make no difference to any British passport holder, irrespective of country or birth.

The White House did not immediately reply to a request for comment on the Post story. Energy ties Pruitt was confirmed by the U.S. Senate last week after contentious hearings that focused on his record as the top prosecutor of the oil- and gas-producing state of Oklahoma. Democrats had sought to delay Pruitt's confirmation over questions about his ties to the oil industry. Some 800 former EPA staff also signed a letter urging senators to reject him, and about 30 current EPA staff joined a protest set up in Chicago by the Sierra Club environmental group. In Oklahoma, a state judge ruled last week that Pruitt would have to turn over emails between his office and energy companies by Tuesday after a watchdog group, the Center for Media and Democracy, sued for their release.
