Tehran, IRNA – Iran's government cabinet has appointed Deputy Foreign Minister Ali Bagheri Kani as the head of the international committee of Iran's Foreign Ministry, following the martyrdom of Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian in a helicopter crash.

Iran's Government Spokesman Ali Bahadori Jahromi made the announcement on Monday.

The Islamic Republic of Iran’s Guardian Council spokesman Hadi Tahan-Nazif had said that according to the Constitution, the vice president would take over as interim president with the Supreme Leader’s approval.
