Havana, Jan 16 (Prensa Latina) The 17th Session of the Cuba-Iran Intergovernmental Commission, whose main goal is to expand collaboration on various economic and social areas, has concluded on Wednesday in Havana.

During the meeting new agreements were signed to foster bilateral exchange, Cuban Ministry of Foreign Trade and Investment reported.

Cuba and Iran jointly work on several fields of cooperation, including health, investments, energy, agriculture and sports, which, during the previous Intergovernmental Commission held in 2017, were ratified in 12 agreements.
