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.
