The helicopter carrying Iran’s President, which crashed earlier today, has reportedly been found by rescue team.

Iran’s Deputy President for Executive Affairs Mohsen Mansouri said that two members of Raisi’s entourage have contacted rescue teams, and this shows that the air incident involving their helicopter has not been rough, IRNA news agency reports.

Another promising point is that the Ministry of Communications has been able to determine the location of the accident within a radius of two kilometers, Mansouri added.

 

President Raisi was returning from a ceremony to celebrate a dam opening on the border with Azerbaijan when the ill-fated helicopter crashed in the Varzaqan region on Sunday.

Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian, Governor of East Azarbaijan Province Malek Rahmati, and other leaders were also reported to have been on board the helicopter.

Adverse weather conditions, including heavy fog, have been hampering rescue efforts.

Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Khamenei, held an emergency meeting with the National Security Council.

He said:

“We hope Almighty God will return the respected, esteemed President and his entourage to the arms of the nation.

“Everyone should pray for the health of these people who are serving the Iranian nation. The nation doesn’t need to be worried or anxious as the administration of the country will not be disrupted at all”.
