SAEDNEWS: In the presence of the Iranian and Cuban presidents, senior officials of the two countries signed seven documents and agreements on the improvement of bilateral cooperation. Rayeesi and Díaz-Canel also issued a joint statement on strengthening strategic relations between Tehran and Havana.
According to the documents, Iran and Cuba will strengthen collaboration in various sectors of science and technology, health, agriculture, energy and mines, communications and medicine.
Heading a high-ranking politico-economic delegation, the Cuban president landed in Tehran on Sunday night.
Back in June, President Rayeesi visited Havana in line with his administration’s policy of expanding bilateral ties with friendly countries. During the trip, the two countries signed six cooperation pacts in the areas of judicial jurisdiction, comprehensive political cooperation, customs relations, and cooperation in the field of information technology.
Tehran has close ties with many Latin American countries in different domains and seeks to further deepen its relations with those states. The administration of President Rayeesi has described plans to enhance ties with Latin American countries as a main pillar of Iran’s foreign policy.
Iran and Cuba have repeatedly denounced sanctions and unlawful measures imposed on them by the United States.
Iranian officials have underlined that the US has been defeated in the maximum pressure policy against Tehran, underscoring that the policy of isolating Iran has ended up in failure. They say Washington's sanctions and threats have all failed to cease Tehran's progress (SOURCE: FARSNEWS).
