During a virtual meeting, the general director of Bilateral Affairs at the Cuban Foreign Ministry, Emilio Lozada, and his Iranian peer, Reza Nazari Ahari, reaffirmed the two countries’ interest in promoting cooperation, including the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic.

Lozada thanked Iran for its support for Cuba in its fight against Washington’s blockade and for Iran’s rejection of Cuba’s inclusion in the list of State sponsors of terrorism issued by the Donald Trump administration.

For decades, both Iran and Cuba have been targets of US unilateral sanctions and at present, they are collaborating in phase III of clinical trials on the Cuban vaccine candidate Soberana 02 against Covid-19.

As an expression of that cooperation, 100,000 doses of Soberana 02 arrived in Iran in March to immunize the population.

Iranian and Cuban authorities agreed to produce that vaccine together, which would be administered in April.
