Ebrahim Raisi was an Iranian politician who was President of Iran from 2021 until his death on 19 May 2024. Ebrahim Raisi died in a helicopter crash in foggy weather in the mountains near the border with Azerbaijan, Iranian IRNA news agency reported. Foreign minister Hossein Amir-abdollahian and the governor of Iran’s East Azerbaijan province were among those killed.

Ebrahim Raisi had been in Azerbaijan early on Sunday to inaugurate a dam with the country’s president, Ilham Aliyev. The dam is the third that the two nations have built on the Aras River. The visit came despite chilly relations between the two nations, including over a gun attack on Azerbaijan’s embassy in Tehran in 2023, and Azerbaijan’s diplomatic relations with Israel, which Iran’s Shia Islam theocracy views as its main enemy in the region.[1]
