UK policy towards Cuba is not affected by comments made by Iran's Foreign Minister. The UK has a longstanding policy of engagement with Cuba. Our relationship allows us to collaborate positively in areas of mutual interest and to talk frankly on matters where our views and interests differ. We have consistently voted in the UN to oppose the US embargo on Cuba. We continue to draw attention to human rights violations in Iran and Cuba.
