The US on Monday said the Iranian government asked Washington for assistance after the helicopter crash that killed Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi and other officials, but it was unable to provide it due to "logistical reasons," APA reports quoting Anadolu Agency.

"I'm not going to get into the details, but we were asked by the Iranian government for assistance," State Department spokesman Matthew Miller told reporters.

"We said that we would be willing to assist something that we would do with respect to any government in this situation, ultimately, largely for logistical reasons we were unable to provide that assistance," Miller added.
