Eynollahi made the remarks in a meeting with Cuban Deputy Foreign Minister Elio Rodríguez Perdomo in the Iranian capital on Sunday, noting that the Iranian Health Ministry is in charge of heading the joint economic commission of Cuba and Iran, and that the commission provides a precious opportunity for both sides to develop relationship.
According to the Iranian minister, the 18th joint economic commission was held in Tehran this year and such interactions will consolidate mutual ties.
He underlined the need for implementation of joint documents signed by the two countries, adding that Havana and Tehran have had cooperation in healthcare sector especially in producing coronavirus vaccine.
As to the resilience culture in Cuba, he noted that the Islamic Republic is happy with the revolutionary culture of the Latin American country, and that the culture of the Cuban resistance in the face of the US’s cruel sanctions has been spread in other regional states.
“With the cooperation between Iran as well as friend and revolutionary countries can resist in the face of the global arrogance and American repression,” Eynollahi added.
