In the meeting that was held early on Tuesday Tehran time, Dr Rouhani added: “I am happy that my first bilateral trip to Latin America starts with Cuba, which is the symbol of resistance and fight against colonisation in the continent.

Stating that the Iranian and Cuban nations have resisted against foreign pressures, he said: “The Cuban people’s revolution took place under severest US economic sanctions and the Iranian nation resisted in the 8-year imposed war, while the aggressor was receiving help from the west and the east. Therefore, Iran and Cuba are the symbols of resistance against the severest sanctions”.

During the meeting, Fidel Castro said: “At the outset of the victory of the Islamic Revolution in Iran, I expressed my positive opinion about Imam Khomeini and the Iranian revolution”.

Admiring Iranian people’s resistance against pressures and sanctions, he said: “This is originated from Iranian people’s awareness and cultural growth”.

“Your speech in Non-Aligned Movement was impressive and your presence is inspiring for Latin America,” added Fidel Castro.

He also mentioned the global water crisis and said that water will have a major role in the future.
