Iranian administration vows ‘no disruption’ following leader`s murder

(MENAFN) In the wake of the devastating helicopter crash that claimed the lives of President Ebrahim Raisi and several other prominent officials, the Iranian government has issued assurances that the nation's affairs will proceed without interruption. The tragic incident occurred when the aircraft carrying President Raisi, alongside Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian and other individuals, crashed in a mountainous region of northwest Iran on Sunday.
