Iran president slams sanctions policy targeting independent nations
President Hassan Rouhani says Iran is resolved to strengthen its relations with Cuba, especially in the economic sector, expressing his opposition to the sanctions policy targeting independent nations.
Rouhani made the remarks on Saturday while receiving the credentials of Cuban Ambassador to Tehran Alexis Bandrich Vega.
Rouhani said Iran and Cuba are two revolutionary countries that enjoy very good ties, emphasizing that the Islamic Republic “is determined to develop relations with the Cuban government and will follow this path.”
The Iranian chief executive also stressed that the capacities should be activated for boosting Tehran-Havana ties in different economic fields, particularly in the science and energy sector.
He further slammed sanctions as an inappropriate and worn-out tool, saying Iran is “opposed to the imposition of oppressive sanctions against independent nations, including Cuba.”
