"I express our energetic rejection of the unilateral certifications and blacklists established by the government of the United States", Cuba's foreign minister Bruno Rodriguez told his counterpart.
Cuba and North Korea have vowed to strengthen ties amid escalating political tensions with the US.
Cuban Foreign minister Bruno Rodriguez received his Korean counterpart, Ri Yong Ho, in Havana Wednesday, where both diplomats firmly rejected Washington's approach to resolve political tensions around the world based on "coercive measures".
The ministers, meeting in Havana, called for "respect for peoples' sovereignty" and "the peaceful settlement of disputes", according to a statement released by the Cuban foreign ministry.
The Cuban foreign minister released a statement, saying: The top ministers "strongly rejected the unilateral and arbitrary lists and designations established by the USA government which serve as a basis for the implementation of coercive measures which are contrary to worldwide law".
The ministers particularly stressed on their concerns of an increased U.S. military activity and presence near the Korean peninsula.
In response, Ri said the situation on the Korean Peninsula is worsening and is tense because of the increased use of military forces by the imperialists.

Rodriguez said that Cuba supports peace on the Korean Peninsula and for a political solution only possible through dialogue.
Tensions between the USA and North Korea have escalated as the leaders of the two countries have been locked in a bitter war of words.
In May, President Raul Castro also expressed Cuba's solidarity with Pyongyang to visiting North Korean union leader Ju Yong-Gil. The situation worsened after Donald Trump, during his first address to the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA), vowed to annihilate North Korea if it posed any threat to the U.S. and its allies, and called the Pyongyang leader "rocket man" on a suicide mission.
According to Xinhua news agency, Rodriguez also rejected unilateral sanctions and the inclusion of North Korea in the USA list of state sponsors of terrorism only two days ago by President Donald Trump's administration.
North Korea became one of the top priorities after Donald Trump assumed the presidency in the US.
With regards to Cuba, the Trump administration recently announced changes in policy to roll back Barack Obama's rapprochement strategy towards the island nation.
