Erdogan wishes success for pres. elect Pezeshkian

TEHRAN, Jul. 06 :– Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan congratulated the victory of Masoud Pezeshkian in Iran’s 14th presidential election, saying that Iran and Turkey’s cooperation will be strengthened during his term.

Turkish President congratulated Masoud Pezeshkian on his election as Iran’s president, wishing him success in his new position.

He hoped that the election results would be a source of blessing for the Iranian nation.

The President of Turkey stated that Iran and Turkey’s cooperation would be strengthened during the Pezeshkian presidency, expressing his pleasure to collaborate with Iran.

He also wished for the well-being and prosperity of the friendly and brotherly nation of Iran.

Veteran parliamentarian Masoud Pezeshkian has won Iran’s runoff presidential vote, the interior ministry says, bringing a conclusion to a tight race that saw voters swell polling stations on Friday.

Pezeshkian received more than 16 million votes against former nuclear negotiator Saeed Jalili with more than 13 million out of over 30 million votes cast, electoral authorities said.

“By gaining a majority of the votes cast on Friday, Pezeshkian has become Iran’s next president,” the interior ministry said.

The runoff on Friday followed a June 28 ballot in a snap election to find a successor to President Ebrahim Raeisi who lost his life with his foreign minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian and others in a helicopter crash in northwest Iran.

Pezeshkian originally ran against a field of five candidates last week, winning the largest number of votes but falling short of a majority which sent him and Jalili to a second round.
