On the auspicious occasion of the birth anniversary of Imam Ali ibn Musa al-Ridha (AS), the noble spirit of the servant of the Iranian nation, Ayatollah Raisi, ascended to the heavens. Our tireless and dedicated President, who never wavered in his commitment to the great people of Iran, stood firm in his vow and sacrificed his life for the nation.

The Islamic Republic of Iran's Cabinet offers its deepest condolences over the heart-wrenching helicopter crash that claimed the lives of our beloved President Ayatollah Raisi, our diligent Foreign Minister Dr. Hossein Amir-Abdollahian, Tabriz Imam Ayatollah Al-Hashem, East Azerbaijan Governor Dr. Malek Rahmati, and their esteemed companions. We extend our sympathies to the Imam of the Age (may God hasten his reappearance), the Supreme Leader, and the noble Iranian nation.

We assure our loyal and appreciative people that the proud and dedicated path of service will continue, inspired by the tireless spirit of our heroic and loyal President Raisi. With God's help and the support of our honorable people, there will be no disruption in the diligent management of the country."

The statement underscores the government's commitment to maintaining stability and continuing the legacy of President Raisi’s devoted service to the nation.
