Cuban Ambassador Vladimir Gonzalez Quesada held his first meeting with the Director General for Political Affairs and International Security at the Iranian Foreign Ministry, Dr. Hossein Dehghani, who has just assumed this responsibility after serving as Alternate Ambassador of the Iranian mission to United Nations.
During the meeting, the Cuban diplomat and his host exchanged on the excellent cooperation between their respective countries in the multilateral arena, including coordinating positions and reciprocal support for their candidatures in different international organizations. In this sense, they reaffirmed the existence of a political will on both, the Cuban and Iranian authorities.
The Ambassador took advantage of the opportunity to express his gratitude for Iran's permanent support to Cuba in the efforts to demand an end to the US economic, trade and financial blockade imposed against the Island for more than five decades. Dr. Dehghani pointed out that our country can always account with the unconditional support of the Persian nation in this just struggle.
The Iranian executive and the Ambassador agreed that we should continue to make joint efforts in favor of peace and nuclear disarm and to combat the scourge of terrorism. In addition, they settled that the recent unilateral cruiser missile attack perpetrated by US against Syria, with the justification of the alleged use of chemical weapons by its army, was atrocious and unjustified.
