United Nations condolences on the death of the Iranian president

In a statement issued by his spokesman, the High Representative sent his condolences to the families of the victims of the accident as well as to the government and people of the Persian nation.

For their part, the members of the Security Council observed a minute of silence to mourn the soul of the Iranian President, his Foreign Minister, and other officials who were victims of the accident.

Today, Monday, the authorities of the Islamic nation confirmed the death of Raisi and Amir Abdollahian, as well as the governor of East Azerbaijan, Malek Rahmati, and the imam of Friday prayers in Tabriz (the capital of the province), Muhammad Ali Al Hashem. After an extensive search for the helicopter they were traveling in.

The ship was forced to make an emergency landing, prompting an intensive search by Red Crescent relief forces and military and police personnel assisting that country, with support from other countries, amid complex weather conditions that made visibility difficult.

On Sunday, President Rouhani arrived at Tabriz Airport to participate in the inauguration ceremony of the joint Qiz Qalasi Dam on the Aras River on the border between Iran and Azerbaijan, in the presence of his counterpart Ilham Aliyev.

The Head of State visited those responsible for the bridge project linking the Aras Highway and the railway line, as part of the corridor between the cities of Julfa in East Azerbaijan, and Kalala in the Republic of Azerbaijan.
