Iran's Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) expresses its condolences over the "honorable martyrdom" of Iranian President Ebrahim Raeisi and his entourage in a chopper crash in East Azarbaijan Province.

In a statement on Monday, the IRGC said the president's memories and "inspiring and epic" role in fulfilling important and sensitive responsibilities in the Islamic establishment, particularly during his three-year presidential tenure, must always remain alive and serve as a good model.

It added that the Islamic establishment will continue to move towards building a "strong Iran" and promoting "modern Islamic civilization" based on prudent guidelines of Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei and support of the Iranian nation.

The Islamic establishment will further move more resolutely to defeat and disappoint sworn enemies, it emphasized.

The IRGC said that President Raeisi's life has always been based on piety, sincerity, justice and trust in God, which can lead the Iranian people in the future.

The late president has always tried hard to solve the problems of the country and people by using the existing capacities, the statement read.

The Iranian president, Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian and their accompanying delegation lost their lives after the helicopter carrying them crashed in the northwestern province of East Azarbaijan due to harsh weather conditions on Sunday. Their bodies were found on Monday after a massive night-long search operation.
