TEHRAN, May 19 (MNA) – Tehran-Havana relations are strategic, president Raeisi said, calling for developing cooperation between Iran and Cuba in all fields by using the numerous capacities and potential of the two countries.

Cuban Deputy Prime Minister Ricardo Cabrisas, who arrived in Tehran to attend the 18th meeting of the Iran-Cuba Joint Economic Commission, met with the  Iranian President Ebrahim Raeisi on Wednesday.
