In the Name of Allah

I offer my condolences to the scientific and academic community and the Armed Forces of the country on the martyrdom of the profound-thinker and humble scientist, Deputy Minister of Defense and Armed Forces Logistics, Dr. Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, who was a commander in the field of science and technology. I hope that the blessed soul of this man of high spirit who did not neglect a single moment pursuing his scientific goals to ensure the security of the country, and defending our beloved homeland, will be associated with the dear martyrs of Iran, especially the commander of the battlefield and diplomacy Lieutenant-General Qassem Soleimani. May Almighty God bestow great patience upon his esteemed family, his friends, his comrades and the dear Iranian nation!

Undoubtedly, the Islamic Republic of Iran will give a calculated and decisive response to the criminals who took Martyr Fakhrizadeh from the Iranian nation. The morning is so close and near.


Seyed Kamal Kharrazi

President of the Strategic Council on Foreign Relations
