From Iranian state media (FNA):
Cuba Renews Support for Iran's Nuclear Program
Cuban Vice President Gladys Bejerano Portela in a meeting with Iran's new Ambassador to Havana Kambiz Sheikh Hassani renewed her country’s full support for Tehran's peaceful nuclear program.
"We strongly support Iran's efforts to make further progress in the field of nuclear technology and removal of the western sanctions," Portela said during the meeting on Thursday.
She pointed to the two countries’ friendly relations, and said, "We want further improvement of relations, specially in the economic and trade areas."
Sheikh Hassani, for his part, pointed to the status quo of Tehran-Havana relation, and said, "I will do my best during my tenure here in Havana to further broaden bilateral ties between the two countries."
In recent years, Iran has been seeking to enhance its relations with Latin American countries within the framework of international organizations such as the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM), whose rotating presidency is currently held by Iran.
