The Spanish-language news channel Hispantv reported on the message from Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez on his official Twitter account.
It reported the Cuban foreign minister extended warm congratulations to the Iranian people and his counterpart, Hosein Amir Abdolahian, and highlighted the close relations between Havana and Tehran.
“Cuba and Iran are two friendly countries that share historic relations of friendship and cooperation,” he said in the message.
Cuba was one of the first countries that recognized Iran’s Islamic Revolution, and since then, both States have maintained relations, which became official on August 8, 1979, and have been steadily sustained up to the present day.
For more than four decades, Havana and Tehran have made major achievements regarding political coordination and exchange of opinions in several spheres of interest, especially the transfer of Cuban biotechnological products.
The Islamic Revolution triumphed on February 11, 1979.
Led by Imam Khomeini, it ended the dictatorial regime of Mohamad Reza Pahlavi, in power since September 16, 1941.
