Raisi: Revenge for Sayyad Khodaei is certain
The Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi visits the Sultanate of Oman in an effort to develop relations with neighboring countries, and confirms the killing of Colonel Hassan Sayyad Khodaei will be avenged.
Before leaving Tehran for the Sultanate of Oman on Monday, Iranian President Ibrahim Raisi stated that "Revenge for the blood of the martyr Sayyad Khadaei is certain."
Raisi elaborated that those who were defeated by the defenders of Al-Quds, implying the Israeli occupation, demonstrate their helplessness by assassinating martyr Sayyad Khodaie.
The Islamic Revolution Guard Corps (IRGC) confirmed Sunday that one of its officers, Sayyad Khodaei, was assassinated in front of his house in the Iranian capital, Tehran.
The Iranian ministry of foreign affairs condemned the assassination, offering its condolences to Khodaei's family members while describing the murder as "a crime against humanity."
Regarding his visits to the Sultanate of Oman, the Iranian president made it clear that this visit comes within the framework of developing relations with neighboring countries, hoping that these visits will continue.
Joining Raisi will be the Iranian Transport and Urban Development Minister Rostam Ghasemi.
Iran and Oman signed in February a Memorandum of Understanding during the 19th meeting of the Joint Economic Committee in order to promote stronger economic ties and maritime trade through the Chahabar port.
Raisi stressed that trade relations between Iran and Oman "will improve in various fields, including transportation, energy, and tourism," revealing that this visit will include the signing of a memorandum of understanding between the two countries.
The Iranian president considered that "regional cooperation and dialogue would ensure security for the region and that foreign presence does not bring security to the region, but rather threatens it."
