On behalf of the National People’s Power and the people of Sri Lanka, we would like to extend our deepest condolences to the people and the government of Iran on the occasion of the sudden demise of the Iranian President, H.E. Ebrahim Raisi, Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian, and other esteemed statesmen who tragically lost their lives in the fatal helicopter accident. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families and friends of the departed, as well as the entire nation of Iran during this difficult time.

President Ebrahim Raisi’s demise is an irreversible loss not only to the people of Iran and the Middle East but also to the global community. President Raisi tirelessly worked to strengthen friendly and non-hegemonic relations with numerous countries, including Sri Lanka. His recent visit to Sri Lanka to inaugurate a hydropower project, funded by the Iranian people, stands as a testament to his unwavering commitment to international cooperation and sustainable development. Furthermore, his final trip to Azerbaijan to inaugurate a similar project underscores his steadfast dedication to fostering regional collaboration and promoting mutual prosperity.

We of the National People’s Power are confident that his legacy of fostering cooperation, development, and friendly relations will undoubtedly inspire the Iranian people to carry forward his mission, ensuring continued progress and stability both within Iran and throughout the Middle East.

Our deepest solidarity is with the people of Iran during this tragic moment.

Anura Dissanayake MP,


Jathika Jana Balawegaya (NPP)
