Rohani optimistic about further expansion of Iran-Cuba ties

Politics - Iranian president-elect Hassan Rohani has expressed optimism about the prospect of bilateral relations between Iran and Cuba.

In a Tuesday message, Rohani thanked Cuban President Raul Castro for his congratulatory message over his victory in Iran’s June 14 presidential election.

“I believe that the amicable ties between Iran and Cuba will further expand to the benefit of the great nations of both countries,” Rohani pointed out.

Rohani emerged victorious in Iran’s 11th presidential election winning 50.7 percent of a total of over 36 million ballots counted. The voter turnout in the election was 72.7 percent.

Cuba has repeatedly underlined its determination to support Iran’s nuclear energy program and strengthen mutual cooperation to counter Western embargos against Tehran.

Analyst say Tehran and Havana have reinforced the global front against the Western capitalism.

Despite the geographical distance, Iran and Cuba hold common views on many international issues including the establishment of justice, Palestine, disarmament, human rights and sovereignty of the world nations.
