Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif says Iran and Cuba have proven that the United States has failed to advance its agendas by exerting pressure on the two countries.

According to Press TV, in a meeting with his Cuban counterpart Bruno Rodriguez in Havana on Monday, Zarif added that Iran and Cuba proved that they can overcome sanctions through resistance.

“The Iranian nation proved that sanctions imposed by big powers cannot distance it  from its policies and viewpoints,” he said.

He added that Iran has always stood by the Cuban nation in countering sanctions and hailed Havana’s support for the Iranian people in the face of brutal US-led bans.

The top Iranian diplomat said Tehran and Havana can boost cooperation on the international scene, adding, “The two countries have always had common stances on confronting the use of economic force and pressure as well as meddling in the internal affairs of other countries.”

He expressed hope that Iran and Cuba, as two influential members of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM), would through their cooperation “succeed in further advancing the objectives” of the body.
