President Hassan Rouhani said on Saturday that Iran is ready to boost ties with Cuba in various economic fields, particularly in the science and energy sectors.
Iran and Cuba are two revolutionary countries that enjoy very good relations, Rouhani said, adding that the Islamic Republic “was determined to deepen ties with the Cuban government and will continue on this path.”
Iran is against using sanctions because they are an improper, old tool, said Rouhani adding: “The Islamic Republic of Iran is opposed to unjust sanctions on independent nations, including Cuba.”
Rouhani made the remarks on Saturday while receiving the credentials of Cuban ambassador to Tehran Alexis Bandrich Vega.
