Prime Minister Imran Khan on Saturday congratulated Ebrahim Raisi on being elected as the president of the Islamic republic of Iran.
“Congratulations to Excellency brother Ibrahim Raisi @raisi_com on his landmark victory in the Islamic Republic of Iran’s 13th Presidential elections,” the premier said on Twitter.
“Look forward to working with him for further strengthening of our fraternal ties and for regional peace, progress and prosperity,” he added.
Messages congratulating Raisi poured in after he won Iran’s presidential election as his rivals conceded even before official results were announced.
The other three candidates in the race congratulated him for his victory, which had been widely expected after a host of heavyweight rivals had been barred from running.
