Iran’s Zarif: Castro’s campaign to go down in history
Tehran, Iran, November 28
By Mehdi Sepahvand –- Trend:
Commander Fidel Castro’s campaign against domineering power will go down in history, wrote Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif signing a guestbook at the Cuban Ambassador to Iran’s residence, during a ceremony to commemorate the late Cuban revolutionary leader Fidel Castro.
Zarif wrote a note of condolence on behalf of Iran to Cuba, referring to Castro as “The great leader of the revolution of the people of Cuba, who played a big role in freedom seeking and arrogance fighting in Latin America.”
Castro died on November 26 at the age of 90.
He famously led a guerrilla campaign that gained popular support and ousted US-backed Cuban dictator General Fulgencio Batista on January 1, 1959.
