Iran's ambassador in Cuba, Kambiz Sheikh-Hassani, referred to the good relations between his country and the Caribbean nation, especially in the political sphere, announced the official Cuban press. "The Persian nation has useful experiences that the island could use as the subsidy policy, the development of science and its products, nanotechnology, biotechnology, defense industry and infrastructure development," Sheikh-Hassani said. Since coming to office in 2013, the highest Iranian President Hassan Rohani has insisted on strengthening links with the Greater Antilles in the fields of economy and science, said the diplomat. "Just as Cuba collaborated with my country in the past with regard to technology transfer for the manufacture of vaccines, we are ready to help not only with the supply of consumer goods, but also with the necessary machinery to develop its industry," he said. Likewise, he considered that Havana could leverage the strengths of Tehran in various fields such as petroleum, petrochemical, industrial machinery, transportation by roads or railways, supply and manufacture of building materials, mass construction of housing, construction boats and spare parts industry. The diplomat also said he was very happy that the beginning of his mission on the island coincided with the beginning of the process of normalization of relations between Cuba and the US. According to the official, Iran supports the process of normalization of ties and the total elimination of the embargo on Cuba.
