Cuba’s sock puppet president picked the perfect the place to show the world why the communist Castro dictatorship remains on the list of State Sponsors of Terrorism. While visiting Iran, a fellow terrorism sponsor, the so-called president met with Iran’s dictator, where he reaffirmed Cuba’s support for Palestine’s Hamas terrorists and pledged to continue cooperation with Iran’s terrorist regime.
Diaz-Canel reaffirms his support for Palestine in Iran, whose regime celebrated the Hamas attack on Israel
On Monday, Miguel Díaz-Canel was received by the Iranian President, Ayatollah Seyed Ebrahim Raisi, at Sadabad Palace in Tehran, where he arrived on Sunday. The Persian nation is the last stop on a tour through the Middle East during which the Cuban leader sought investors and mediated for the Islamist group Hamas.
On his X account, Díaz-Canel expressed happiness at the reunion with the Iranian President and assured that “the official conversations were very positive.” According to the Cuban leader, these talks were “an expression of the solid bonds of brotherhood between our nations.”
“We are going to strengthen and expand bilateral ties,” he announced.
According to state-run media outlet Cubadebate, Raisi and Díaz-Canel held private discussions, so it remains unknown what the two leaders talked about, given their shared strong animosity towards Washington.
Díaz-Canel stated on X that “the energy, agri-food, and health sectors are identified as having great potential to strengthen economic, trade, and cooperation ties between Cuba and Iran.”
Cuba is undergoing an energy crisis that has caused prolonged blackouts. A year ago, Díaz-Canel embarked on a journey to countries governed by allies, seeking assistance to alleviate the blackouts that sparked popular protests in the country. A year later, the regime has yet to provide a lasting solution to the energy situation.
The lack of food is another reason for discontent, leading to protests in Cuba. The regime no longer even guaranteeing the meager products from the ration book. Recently, the Cuban Communist Party demanded increased production from farmers, despite the government’s low investment in agriculture.
The mention of possible cooperation in the health sector suggests Díaz-Canel offered his host the only thing the Cuban regime has to offer: health professionals that Cuba exports and from whom it strips off up to 90% of their salaries.
Díaz-Canel underscored his alignment with the Iranian regime by stating on X that during the meeting with Raisi, they both emphasized “the need to end politically motivated unilateral sanctions” and also agreed “unwavering support for the Palestinian cause.”
The Cuban regime never condemned the killing of civilians by Hamas on October 7. Instead, it launched a strong campaign in support of Palestine, including a massive march along Havana’s Malecón where Palestinians residing on the island displayed posters featuring the leaders of that armed group.
Meanwhile, the Iranian regime even celebrated the aggression of the Islamist group on the same day it occurred.
With his trip to Tehran, Díaz-Canel fulfills the promise he made to Raisi in June during the latter’s visit to Havana.
During their meeting, Díaz-Canel expressed his intention to visit Tehran before the year ended. Additionally, both leaders exchanged promises of “complementation” to “confront the empire.”
Several agreements and memorandums of understanding were signed during this visit, including a comprehensive cooperation program that strengthens the current framework of collaboration between Tehran and Havana; an agreement on customs regarding the international movement of goods, and another for the training of personnel for the customs of both countries.
Memorandums of understanding were also signed between the Foreign Ministries, Justice Ministries, and Communication Ministries of both countries.
Before flying to Iran, Díaz-Canel visited Qatar, where he mediated on behalf of Hamas during his meeting with Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al Thani.
They also discussed the “re-launching of economic and commercial collaboration” as one of the fundamental topics of the official discussions, as later mentioned to the entrepreneurs.
He mentioned the consensus reached by the official delegations for the establishment of an intergovernmental economic commission and a binational business committee that will contribute, in addition to increasing exchanges, to a greater understanding within the Qatari business community of the economic and commercial opportunities offered by the Cuban Government.
In the United Arab Emirates, the first stop on his tour, Díaz-Canel met with Emirati businessmen and women, reopened a Casa del Habano, and greeted Cuban residents in that country responsible for amplifying the government’s propaganda.
Several agreements were also sealed there between banks, fiscal tools for investment, promises of more trips to connect both countries, and requests for access to funds from the host country.
