The United States of America has revealed a number of reasons that might have led to the crash of the helicopter carrying Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi.

Raisi, alongside the country’s Foreign Minister, Hossein Amir-Abdollahian lost their lives in a helicopter crash that occurred in a mountainous area in the province of East Azerbaijan, amid foggy conditions.

 

 

Others on board the helicopter include East Azerbaijan Governor, Malek Rahmati, and Ayatollah Mohammad Ali Ale-Hashem, representative of Iranian Supreme Leader to East Azerbaijan.

There were three helicopters in this convoy, two of which were carrying the ministers and officials.

US Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin denied any US role in the crash.

He said there was no reason to think it was anything other than an accident.

“The United States had no part to play in that crash. That’s a fact, plain and simple.

“It could be a number of things — mechanical failure, pilot error, you name it.

“We continue to monitor the situation but we don’t have any insights into the cause of the accident,” he said.
