The Islamic Republic of Iran and Cuba has signed 12 development cooperation Memoranda of Understanding during the last day of the 16th Session of the Intergovernmental Commission between both nations that closed today.
The cooperation on health, agriculture, pharmaceuticals and education sectors was chaired by both Cuban Minister of Foreign Trade and Investment Rodrigo Malmierca and the Iranian Minister of Health and Medical Teaching Hassan Qazizadeh.
We are pretty sure that working together, the economic relations between both nations will be reaching a level as high as the policies, Malmierca said at the end of the ceremony.
On the other hand, the Iranian minister stated his satisfaction for the signing of these 12 documents and for the implementation of other 10 possible agreements in future.
For Qazizadeh, these cooperation tools and holding the session of the joint commission, with very successful outcomes, will be rather effective for strengthening our bilateral ties.
Six months ago, we witnessed the gathering between Iranian and Cuban Presidents Hasan Rouhaní and Raúl Castro, respectively, who insisted on expanding bilateral cooperation, he said.
That is why, he added, I am pretty sure that we will be witnessing greater activities in future for the agreements already signed today and for the strengthening of Cuba-Iran relations.
During his stay in Cuba, the Iranian Minister of Health and Medical Teaching Hassan Qazizadeh also conducted a secondary program including some interviews with Cuban Vice President Ricardo Cabrisas, and Ministers of Health and Energy and Mining Roberto Morales and Alfredo López, respectively.
