Blinken: We don't mourn Raisi, Iranians probably feel better

The United States, despite official condolences, does not mourn the death of Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi. This statement was made by US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken at a hearing in the Foreign Relations Committee of the Senate of Congress, TASS reported.

„We certainly do not mourn his death,” he said. So Blinken responded to a comment by Sen. Ted Cruz (Republican of Texas), who called attention to the fact that the State Department expressed condolences for Raisi's death. At the same time, Cruz called it a shame that the flags at the UN headquarters in Geneva were flown at half-mast in mourning for the death of the Iranian president. “We certainly wouldn't do that,”, emphasized the US Secretary of State.
