Iran reaffirms continuation of departed President Raisi’s path

The Iranian government asserted today that departed Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi never hesitated to serve the country and follow in the footsteps of its development and prosperity, emphasizing that he was a servant of the people who loved him.

It stressed that his passing marks the completion of his path of flawlessly serving the country, offering condolences to the Iranian people and the Leader of the Revolution and Islamic Republic of Iran Sayyed Ali Khamenei over Raisi’s loss.

Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi alongside Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian and accompanying officials have passed away in the tragic helicopter crash in Iran’s East Azerbaijan Province, according to an official statement by Iranian state media.

After locating the helicopter carrying the Iranian President and accompanying officials on the morning of May 20, Iran’s Red Crescent Society (IRCS) issued a preliminary statement noting that there was “no sign of life” found near the wreckage locations.

This announcement comes over 16 hours after the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps reported they had lost contact with the helicopter carrying the officials. Since then, at least 73 rapid response and rescue teams from the provinces of East Azarbaijan, Tehran, Alborz, Ardabil, Zanjan, and West Azarbaijan were involved in the search and rescue operations led by the Iranian RCS.
