Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad reacts with calm indifference to the threats by the United States, said the leader of the Cuban Revolution Fidel Castro in an article written after his meeting with the Iranian leader.
“When we met, I could see that the Iranian President was absolutely quiet, even indifferent to the threat of Yankee. He is confident about the abilities of its people to resist aggression and the effectiveness of weapons that ‘they produce, “wrote Castro.
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad visited Cuba from 11 to 12 January. During his visit, he delivered a speech at the University of Havana and met with Fidel and Raul Castro.
“I am convinced that Iran will take no action irresponsible and likely to cause a war. If a war breaks out, it will be a consequence of adventurism and irresponsibility of the innate Yankee empire,” said Fidel Castro.
Several Western countries, the United States in mind, suspect Iran of seeking to develop nuclear weapons under a program conducted according to Tehran for peaceful purposes.
The tension around the Iranian nuclear issue is escalated after Tehran had threatened to close the Strait of Hormuz to oil transit in case of Western sanctions against Iranian oil exports. The U.S. Navy has promised to prevent the closure of the Strait.
