Will the death of Iranian President Ebrahim Raïssi in a deleterious Middle Eastern context have consequences for the Islamic Republic and, more broadly, for the region? This is the question everyone is asking the day after the crash of the helicopter carrying the President and Foreign Minister of Iran, Hossein Amir-Abdollahian. Professor emeritus of the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies in Geneva (IHEID) and specialist on Iran, Mohammad-Reza Djalili underlines: “This tragedy will in fact weaken the image of the Iranian regime which has the pretension of “always being up to the task, but showing itself incapable of ensuring the security of its president and its head of diplomacy.”
