Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif claimed that Iran understands the pressure of US imposed sanctions on Cuba and therefore will endeavor to maintain good relations with the Caribbean island nation.

He made the remarks before arriving in the Cuban capital of Havana, his first visit to Latin America, on early Monday adding that “the Cuban people have endured America’s outrageous pressures and sanctions for more than five decades, and despite Obama’s visit to Havana, the sanctions, although slightly lessened, are still in place.”

Zarif went on to add, “since opposing arrogance is a significant feature of our Islamic Revolution and Iran has been sanctioned by the US for over three decades, we understand Cuba’s situation and will stand by its nation and government.”

“Politically, we have maintained good coordination with Cuba for holding NAM (Non-Aligned Movement) summit in Venezuela next month,” he added.

The Foreign Minister will now depart for Nicaragua in Central America before viits to Ecuador, Chile, Bolivia and Venezuela in South America.
