Iranian President, who was on board the missing helicopter, could have died

A rescue team is trying to reach the site of a helicopter crash carrying Iranian President Ibrahim Raisi and Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian, state TV channel IRIB reports. The suspected crash site is about 600 kilometers northwest of Tehran.

Raisi was in Azerbaijan early Sunday morning, where he and Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev attended the inauguration of the third dam on the Araks River, built jointly by the two countries. This visit was aimed at strengthening cooperation between the two countries in the field of water resources and energy.

According to the Iranian news agency IRIB, fears are growing that the incident with the Iranian President's helicopter is serious. It is reported that there is a high probability of injury to those on board. There is also information that the helicopter was seriously damaged. This indicates a high probability of death for those on board.

The rescue operation is complicated by the inaccessibility of the area where the accident occurred and unfavorable weather conditions. Thick fog and difficult terrain make it difficult for rescue teams to reach the crash site as quickly as possible and provide the necessary assistance to the victims.
