The cooperation document was signed on the sidelines of the first joint trade meeting of Iran and Cuba in the presence of Cuban and Iranian officials and businessmen, including the Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and Cuban Minister of Foreign Trade and Investment Rodrigo Malmierca Diaz.
Iran Chamber of Commerce Deputy of International Affairs Farhad Sharif and his Cuban counterpart Odalys Seijo Garcia signed the MoU.
Heading a 120-member delegation, Zarif arrived in Cuba on Sunday night on the first leg of his Latin American tour.
He will travel to Nicaragua, Ecuador, Chile, Bolivia and Venezuela, respectively after visiting Cuba and during his week-long tour.
Zarif’s visit is aimed at fostering Iran’s political and economic relations with Latin American countries after the implementation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan Of Action and removal of sanctions against the Islamic Republic.
