HAVANA, Feb 8 (AFP) - Cuba's President Fidel Castro is to visit Iran in the course of 2001, Iranian diplomatic sources said Wednesday.

Several dates have been proposed for the trip, including during the visit to Tehran by Cuban Foreign Minister Felipe Perez Roque last month. Iran's Ambassador to Cuba Seyed Davood Salehi told press.

Cuba's Vice President, Carlos Lage, the author of Cuba's cautious economic reforms, was also in Iran some months ago.

President Mohammad Khatami, meanwhile, visited Cuba in September 2000, after participating in a summit of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) in the Venezuelan capital Caracas.

Iran and Cuba have a number of cooperative agreement, notably in biotechnology, scientific exchange and fishing.

Cuba also provides Iran with medicine, vaccines and sugar.
