I was deeply saddened by the news of the death of crew members as a result of a crash of an Iranian tanker.
On the occasion of this tragedy, on behalf of the people of Azerbaijan and on my own behalf, I extend my deepest condolences to you, families and loved ones of those who died and the whole people of Iran.
May Allah rest the souls of the dead in peace!
President of the Republic of Azerbaijan
