Prime Minister Narendra Modi expressed profound grief over the death of Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi, who perished in a helicopter crash on Sunday. In a heartfelt message, PM Modi conveyed his condolences, stating that India stands with Iran in this "time of sorrow." He emphasized, "Deeply saddened and shocked by the tragic demise of Dr. Seyed Ebrahim Raisi, President of the Islamic Republic of Iran. His contribution to strengthening India-Iran bilateral relationships will always be remembered. My heartfelt condolences to his family and the people of Iran. India stands with Iran in this time of sorrow," he posted on X (formerly Twitter).

Prior to the crash, PM Modi had expressed "deep concern" when news emerged that President Raisi's helicopter had gone missing. He mentioned praying for the well-being of the president and his entourage, which included Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian.

India signed a significant 10-year contract on May 13 to operate the strategic Iranian port of Chabahar, aimed at expanding trade with Central Asia. This agreement underscored the growing ties between India and Iran, further deepened by the mutual respect between their leaders.

The helicopter, part of a convoy, was carrying President Raisi along with other senior leaders, including Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian. Unfortunately, contact with the aircraft was lost almost 30 minutes after takeoff, reportedly due to bad weather while it was crossing a mountainous region in the country's East Azerbaijan province.

Foreign Minister S. Jaishankar also mourned the loss of the two Iranian leaders. He reflected on his past meetings with them and expressed his sorrow in a post on X, "Deeply shocked to hear of the passing away of Iran's President Dr. Ebrahim Raisi and Foreign Minister H. Amir-Abdollahian in the helicopter crash. Recall my many meetings with them, most recently in January 2024. Our condolences to their families. We stand with the people of Iran at this time of tragedy."

The death of President Raisi comes at a time of rising tensions in the region, especially amid the ongoing Gaza conflict and recent escalations between Iran and Israel. President Raisi, who had been in office since 2021, was known for his staunch support for Palestine, a stance he reiterated during his recent dam inauguration speech.

This tragic incident marks a significant loss for Iran and casts a shadow over the delicate geopolitical landscape of the region.
