21 May, 2024 15:07

A US State Department spokesman issued an important statement regarding the helicopter crash of the Iranian president.

Matthew Miller addressing a press conference in Washington says that Iran had requested help on the helicopter crash. However, he openly acknowledged that the Iranian government had requested help after the crash, but declined to give details to reporters.

Miller further said that foreign governments continue to request, but Iran has not been helped.

In response to a question, the US State Department spokesperson said that we do not want to see anyone die in a helicopter crash. He maintained that we will not apologize for the sanctions imposed on Iran as the Iranian government is responsible for using the 45-year-old helicopter in bad weather.

Matthew Miller, while talking about the ban, added that the Iranian government has used its planes to support terrorism, and the United States will continue to support the Iranian people and fight government terrorism.

Earlier,  Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi and foreign minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian martyred when their helicopter crashed in mountain terrain in heavy fog, Iranian media confirmed Monday.

The pair were confirmed dead after the chopper crashed as it was crossing mountain terrain in heavy fog in the province of East Azerbaijan, Press TV reported.
