Head of State ratifies brotherhood to Iran’s interim president, Mohammad Mokhber

The president of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro Moros, ratified the ties of brotherhood and fraternity with the Islamic Republic of Iran, after speaking by telephone with the president in charge of that nation, Dr. Mohammad Mokhber, who is in charge of the presidency after the unfortunate accident that took the lives of President Ebrahim Raisi and other officials of his government.

Through his account on the X social network Nicolasmaduro, the Venezuelan head of state reported that he maintained contact by telephone with the president in charge of Iran, “to whom I conveyed on behalf of Venezuela our heartfelt condolences for the irreparable physical loss of the dear brother forever, Ebrahim Raisi, of the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Hossein Amir Abdollahian and the delegation that accompanied them on the flight.”

May his wife, his family, his friends and the entire Iranian people count on our brotherhood and fraternity. The example and legacy of President Raisi will continue to live on with the Islamic Revolution, which will advance along the path of growth,” added the first national leader.

The plane crash occurred on Sunday, May 19, when the helicopter in which the president of Iran was traveling fell to the ground due to weather conditions. Shortly before the accident was reported, Raisi had met with the president of Azerbaijan, Ilham Aliyev, on the border between the two countries at the inauguration ceremony of new hydraulic works on the Araz River. The accident area was around the village of Uzi, in the province of East Azerbaijan.
