Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said Sunday that the country is ready to support the creation in Tehran of a tribal herbal clinic that will provide health care to the country’s tribesmen.
Rouhani made the comments during a visit to the city of Shiraz where he said he is supporting the establishment of a center for tribal herbal medicines.
The president is the second highest-ranking Iranian leader to say the country will support tribal herbal therapy as a major health care strategy.
The ayatollah said that the center will help Iranians to avoid illnesses and illnesses.
He also said that if tribal medicine is not part of Iranian medicine, it will be eliminated and that the nation will be more peaceful.
Rouhollahs comments came after the head of the United States’ Central Command, General Lloyd Austin, said the United Nations has a “very, very limited ability” to provide aid to Iran because of its support for militant groups in Iraq.
The United States has provided some humanitarian aid to Iraq, but Austin said the country has been “very reluctant” to help Shiite communities.
Iran has been a major target of U.S. and NATO airstrikes against its forces in Iraq and Syria, but the U.N. has said it is unable to deliver the aid.

Rohani also said Sunday the government is working to increase health care services to its people.
“We are creating a medical clinic to treat the needs of our people.
We are not just giving them medicines, we are going to provide them with medical care,” Rouhani said, according to the state-run Press TV.
“If we can help our people in the country, the nation has no other choice.”
Rouhiyati, who will be inaugurated as president on Monday, has said he would work to create a tribal medicine center.
He has promised that the health care system will improve and that he would provide more health care for Iranians.
Rihani has previously called on people to be more patient and less aggressive in dealing with ailments.
He said he was not worried about the impact of the health crisis on Iran’s economy because the country had been successful with a “steady” economic recovery.
