Iranian foreign minister Mohammad Javad Zarif arrived to Havana on Tuesday afternoon for talks with his Cuban counterpart Bruno Rodriguez, in a visit aimed at reinforcing their nations’ mutual support in the face of the economic sanctions imposed by the United States.

During a press conference, Zarif explained that Havana and Tehran would mark “the mutual solidarity between both nations, faced with the toughening of sanctions by the current US administration on countries that don’t bend to its will.”

Rodriguez told reporters in the Cuban capital that “Cuba will support the peaceful use of nuclear energy and technology to contribute to socio-economic development, and will condemn the decision of the United States government to unilaterally withdraw from … the Nuclear Agreement with Iran.”

Rodriguez also said that the United States’ decision “clearly violates the rules of coexistence between states, and could provoke serious consequences for stability and security in the Middle East.”
