The United States says that after the helicopter crash of the Iranian president, Iran asked for help from the United States, but the United States was unable to accept Iran’s request due to logistical reasons.

US State Department spokesman Matthew Miller declined to provide details on the assistance during a press briefing.

He said that the Iranian government is responsible for the decision to use the 45-year-old helicopter in bad weather.

Matthew Miller said that he will not apologize at all for the sanctions imposed on Iran.

The spokesperson of the US State Department added that the Iranian government used its aircraft to support terrorism, and sanctions against the Iranian government will continue.

It should be noted that the accident of the Iranian president’s helicopter happened in the Iranian province of East Azerbaijan during heavy fog while passing through the mountainous areas.

According to Iranian media, Iranian President Ibrahim Raisi and Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdullahyan were killed in the accident.

According to Tehran Times, the governor of East Azerbaijan, Malik Rahmati, the representative of Iran’s Supreme Leader in East Azerbaijan, Mohammad Ali, were among the dead.
