Decision to pilot helicopter with Iran’s President an ‘imprudent move’

ASPI military analyst Malcolm Davis says it is “way too early” to speculate on the cause of the helicopter crash involving Iran’s President.

A helicopter carrying Iran’s President Ebrahim Raisi and Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian has been involved in an accident in the north of the country.

“The pilot took the helicopter into mountainous terrain in bad weather and fog which I think was a very imprudent move on his part,” Mr Davis said.

“Now the situation is that rescue teams are trying to find the helicopter to determine if the occupants have survived.”
