President Raisi:

Tehran(IP)- The Iranian president said on Monday on the sidelines of Inking MOUs with his Cuban counterpart that both sides are standing against the domineering system, experience sanctions, and believe that a pro-Palestinian coalition should be formed.

Iran PressIran news: Speaking on the sidelines of the ceremony of signing memoranda of understanding between the different sectors of Iran and Cuban with the presidents of the two countries in attendance on Monday morning, the Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi said: "The cooperation between Iran and Cuba is developing in the field of science and technology. One of the manifestations of the cooperation was the development of a vaccine, which was carried out in cooperation with Cuba and was successful. With the documents signed between the two countries, we can have some exchanges in the field of industry."

The Iranian President Further noted: "We can cooperate in the field of agriculture, mining, energy, etc. and there is a serious will between the two countries to develop relations."

President Raisi then stressed: " Today we see that something new is happening between the two countries. Both countries stand against the domineering system. Cuba has been standing up against American excesses for many years, and this Cuban resistance is commendable. They experience sanctions like us."

The Iranian President went on to note: "The US and the domineering system believe that sanctions can make us surrender and this negligence is the result of their miscalculations. What can neutralize these sanctions is the exchange of capacities between the two countries. For this reason, in the negotiations we had in Havana and Tehran, we decided to improve our relations. What makes the world sad is that the Palestinian people who want their homeland have been attacked by their enemies and the Zionist regime is killing the Palestinian people today with racism, genocide and crimes against humanity."

President Raisi then added: "In our meeting, we emphasized the support of the people of Palestine. It is unfortunate that America, which claims to defend human rights, backs what is against humanity, and what is more unfortunate than this incident is the inefficiency of international organizations that could not stop the Zionist war machine that they received from the US."

"We are negotiating with the honorable president of Cuba we came to the conclusion that the unjust world system must be ended and a just world system should be established and the oppressed people can restore their rights and the oppressors must pull back and withdraw."

"Both of us are of the same opinion that we should form a coalition to support Palestine with the participation of all aligned countries in different continents and this coalition can support Palestinian rights ", concluded he.
