Iran’s Health Minister Bahram Einollahi said that signing 13 cooperation documents between Iran and Cuba shows the high level of relations, saying the two countries will develop cooperation in new technologies and food security.

Addressing the closing ceremony of the 18th joint economic commission meeting, Einollahi said that Iran and Cuba have had cooperation in the field of new technologies, starting from the production of the hepatitis B vaccine and continuing until the production of the COVID19 vaccine.

Iran has chaired the 16th, 17th and 18th Iran-Cuba Joint Trade and Economic Cooperation Commissions for six years.

Despite oppressive sanctions and violations of international law by the colonialists against Iran and Cuba, the two countries controlled COVID19, while Europe and the United States did not do so.

The 18th Joint Commission on Economic Cooperation in the fields of finance, trade, health, banking, energy, oil, agriculture, sports, roads, science, mining and trade brought good achievements for the two countries.

Meanwhile, Cuban Deputy Prime Minister Ricardo Cabrisas Ruiz said that the two countries have great potential for developing cooperation and implementing long-term plans until 2050, part of which was signed in the 18th Commission in the form of memorandums and documents of joint cooperation.

Expressing satisfaction with his visit to Iran and the great achievements of the 18th Joint Commission on Economic Cooperation between Iran and Cuba, he said: "Cuba will always remain a committed friend of Iran."
