Is the Death of the Iranian President the Beginning of the Third World War?

Experts are calling this accident in Iran the beginning of the third world war. Experts say that the death of world Muslim leaders is not a common thing. Somewhere behind it is the hand of the Jews.

But the statement issued by the United States clearly states that the United States has nothing to do with this incident.

Experts say that there should be a thorough investigation into the incident and find out why the helicopter finally crashed. Because it is not common for the president and other ministers to have an accident before the elections.

But according to the reports so far, the Iranian media is saying bad weather is the reason for this accident. As there was fog in the mountain range, the helicopter crashed. But investigation teams are probing the situation and trying to find out if there is any other reason behind the accident.

According to Iranian media, the dead bodies of the deceased have been recovered from the rubble and funerals will be held soon.

Muhammad Mokhbar – Vice President of Iran.

According to the details, after the death of Ebrahim Raisi, the next Iranian president will be Mohammad Mokhbar. Muhammad Mukhabar was serving as Vice President along with Ebrahim Raisi. Therefore, now the presidency will come to him. But there is no confirmed release yet. According to Iranian media, the decision of the presidential office is in the hands of Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khomeini. As of now, only Muhammad Mukhabar is carrying out the presidential duties as the vice president.

General elections are also going to be held in Iran within the next 50 days. These elections will actually decide the power. But according to experts, like every time, the elections in Iran do not have enough meaning, especially for the presidential seat.

Effects on Iran after Raisi’s Death

Ebrahim Raisi was closest to Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khomeini. Therefore, there were strong possibilities that the next Supreme Leader would be Ebrahim Raisi. Since the age of Ayatollah Khomeini has exceeded 85 years, the question that arises in the whole world apart from Iran is that who will become the next Iranian Supreme Leader? This question may cause a political upheaval in Iran in the near future.

Raisi was also supported by the majority of the assembly members, so Raisi’s name was the best option for the next Supreme Leader. But now after Raisi’s death, there may be problems in the Iranian Parliament.

Iran is already suffering from American strictures and along with this, the pressure of Arab countries is also evident on Iran. In such a situation, political upheaval in Iran can cause irreparable damage to Iran.

Iran’s Relations with the Gulf States

During the period of Ebrahim Raisi, Iran’s relations with Arab countries, especially Saudi Arabia, improved significantly. The improvement of these relations is also considered a major achievement of Ebrahim Raisi. China also had a big hand in improving these relations. But if the incoming president goes against Raisi’s policies, Iran’s relations with the Arab countries may deteriorate once again.

Apart from this, Iran’s tension with Israel in the past was also under control due to a far-sighted and wise leader like Ebrahim Raisi. But Israeli pressure over Raisi’s death could also weaken Iran internally.

Due to the joint death of President Ebrahim Raisi and Foreign Minister Hossein Amir, Iran has to balance its relations with other countries in a timely manner. Hussain Amir also had a big hand in improving Iran’s relations with other Asian countries including Pakistan. His successful foreign policy represented Iran in the best way in the world. If Iran wants to continue these foreign relations, then Hossein Amir’s vision must be carried forward. Besides, Iran may face difficulties.

Conclusions

The result of the above discussion is that Ebrahim Raisi made Iran economically, socially and externally sustainable during his tenure. Your death is a great loss for Iran. Many countries of the world, especially Saudi Arabia, became close to Iran only because of the nobility. At the same time, Iran has a big hand in improving relations with other countries as a result of Hossein Amir’s successful foreign policy.

It is not common for Iran to lose these two great personalities. At the same time, if this accident was really a result of bad weather, then fine. Otherwise, if there is an external conspiracy, Iran should be careful.
