Mr. Kian Ersi
Respected CEO of NITC
We are all from Allah and to Him we shall return (Holy Quran)
The catastrophic incident of fire in NITC's oil tanker off the eastern coast of China, which caused the martyrdom-like death of its entire crew and hard-working seafarers, brought about great grief and sorrow for the people of Iran.
I hereby offer my sincerest condolences to the great nation of Iran, especially their bereaved families with all my heart, and pray to the Almighty for highest places for those who were the pioneers of the country and innocently lost their lives on the path to working for national, and ask the Almighty patience and health for their families.
