The president of Iran and the Deputy Prime Minister of Cuba expressed the firm political will of their respective governments to confront the unilateral and coercive measures that the White House illegally imposed against both nations.

Iranian Health Minister Bahram Einollahi referred to the history of medical cooperation between Cuba and Iran, including the production of hepatitis B and coronavirus vaccines, despite the unjust siege imposed on both countries.

Meanwhile, Cuban Deputy Prime Minister Ricardo Cabrisas said that "it is necessary to work from now on in the elaboration of a coherent plan so that the next Joint Commissions can be implemented until 2026", indicating that both nations have energy sources capable of implementing long-term plans until 2050, among which some were agreed upon at this meeting.
