TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The foreign ministers of Iran and Cuba condemned the unilateral sanctions and foreign interference, weighing plans for closer interaction between the two countries in the international organizations.
In a meeting held in Havana on Saturday, Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian and his Cuban counterpart Bruno Rodriguez Parrilla talked about a range of issues, including plans to promote political and economic cooperation between the two countries.
Amirabdollahian said while the ties between Iran and Cuba are founded upon strong and historical pillars and they enjoy perfect political relations, the both nations share common views and purposes in defending their independence and countering unilateralism.
Condemning the foreign interference in Cuba’s internal affairs and the US’ move to provoke riots in Cuba in July 2022, the Iranian foreign minister said, “The US and a number of Western countries are pursuing the policy of imposing sanctions and at the same time interference by creating and fueling riots in the independent states.”
For his part, Rodriguez described the expansion of relations with Iran as a top priority for Cuba.
He, too, condemned the unilateral sanctions and the foreign acts of interference in the domestic affairs of others, expressing gratitude to the Islamic Republic of Iran for supporting Cuba.
The two senior diplomats also weighed plans for cooperation in the international organizations and the exchange of high-ranking delegations.
The top Iranian diplomat has visited Cuba in a tour of Latin America that took him earlier to Nicaragua and Venezuela.
