“The tragic news of the martyrdom of the Islamic Republic of Iran’s President Dr. Seyed Ebrahim Raisi, Foreign Minister Hussein Amirabdollahian, and their colleagues deeply saddens the government and people of Pakistan,” the prime minister stated. “We offer our sincere condolences to the families of the deceased and the Iranian people in this time of grief,” he continued.

In addition, he reflected on President Raisi’s most recent visit to Pakistan, emphasizing the special times spent there with the Pakistani people. Pakistan was close to the late Iranian president. During his journey to Pakistan last month, he made some memories that he will never forget.

The prime minister expressed his best wishes for Iran’s acting.

PM Shehbaz was accompanied by Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Mohammad Ishaq Dar, Federal Interior Minister Syed Mohsin Naqvi, Federal Commerce Minister Jam Kamal Khan, Federal Information Minister Attaullah Tarar and SAPM Mr. Tariq Fatimi.

The prime minister landed in Tehran earlier in the day for a one-day visit. Mehrdad Bazrpash, the Iranian Minister of Roads and Urban Development, met him upon his arrival at Tehran International Airport.

Raisi’s helicopter broke apart on Sunday while traveling to Tabriz from the group’s attendance at the groundbreaking of a dam project near the Azerbaijani border, on a foggy mountainside in northern Iran.

A massive search and rescue effort was initiated, including assistance from Russia, Turkey, and the European Union. Raisi’s passing was first reported by state television on Monday.

Raisi, who was widely expected to succeed Khamenei as supreme leader, was 63.

Ayatollah Khamenei, flanked by high-ranking officials, offered prayers over the coffins of the deceased, who included Hossein Amirabdollahian, the foreign minister.

Ismail Haniyeh, the leader of the Palestinian resistance organization Hamas, and Naim Qassem, the deputy leader of the Lebanese resistance organization Hezbollah, participated in the march.

The bodies will be transported from Tehran to Mashhad, the northeastern Iranian city that is Raisi’s homeland. On Thursday night, following burial rites at the Imam Reza shrine, Raisi will be laid to rest.
