During the meeting with Safari on the sideline of the meeting of the Council of Foreign Ministers of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) on Tuesday, Wang once again expressed condolences and sympathy over the martyrdom of Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi and Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian in a recent helicopter crash, Xinhua reported.

Chinese President Xi Jinping has sent a message of condolence to Iranian leaders, Wang said.

In this difficult time, China firmly stands by Iranian friends, and believes that under the leadership of Ayatollah Khamenei, the Iranian government and people will turn their grief into strength, resolutely advance their established strategies and maintain national stability and development, Wang said.

Regardless of how the situation changes, China will continue to strengthen strategic cooperation with Iran, safeguard common interests, and make endeavors for regional and world peace, he added.
