President Rouhani sent a message to Raúl Modesto Castro Ruz, the President of the Council of State of Cuba, and expressed condolences over Fidel Castros death.
In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful
Your Excellency Mr Raúl Modesto Castro Ruz,
President of the Council of State of Cuba,
The news of your dear brother, the tireless warrior and the leader of Cuban revolution, Fidel Castro Ruzs death caused great grief and sorrow.
In the current age that the oppressed nations around the world are suffering from violation of the most obvious and fundamental human principles such as peace, justice and freedom, fortunately, there are free men and warriors who do not give up fighting until the last days of their lives in order to keep the flag of justice- and freedom seeking waving in the hearts of people.
I, on behalf of the great Iranian nation, offer my condolences over the death of the leader of Cuban revolution to your Excellency, the government and the resilient people of Cuba and Latin America region, and wish pride and felicity for the people of your country.
President of the Islamic Republic of Iran
