Iranian FM says US policy of sanctions doomed to fail

5 Feb 2023 - 13:32

Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian says the US policy of bullying and sanctioning other countries is doomed to fail.

"The United States' policy of [imposing] unilateral sanctions [on other countries] and bullying is doomed to fail," Hossein Amir-Abdollahian said in an early Sunday meeting with his Cuban counterpart, Bruno Rodriguez Parrilla, in Havana.

Amir-Abdollahian also condemned Washington's interventions in Cuba's internal affairs and its attempt to stoke unrest in the Central American country on July 11, 2022. 

"The US and some [other] Western countries pursue the hybrid policy of [imposing] sanctions and intervention [in other countries' affairs] through stoking and encouraging riots in independent countries of the world," Iran's foreign minister said.

He added that political relations between Tehran and Havana are at the highest level, as both countries share the same views and pursue similar goals in their effort to remain independent and oppose unilateralism.

The Cuban minister, for his part, welcomed the visit by the Iranian delegation to his country, describing relations with the Islamic Republic as a priority for Cuba.

He also condemned unilateral sanctions and intervention in other countries' affairs, while extending his gratitude to Tehran for the latter's support for his country.
