Iran's Ambassador and Permanent Representative to the United Nations praised the remarkable participation of Iranians living in the United States in the 13th presidential election.

Iran PressAmerica: Majid Takht-Ravanchi said on Saturday that holding the presidential election in Iran and around the world, once again showed the will of the great Iranian nation in determining its own destiny.

In a statement, the diplomat congratulated Ebrahim Raisi for his victory in the presidential elections and thanks his fellow Iranians living in America for turning out in the elections despite the harassment by a small number of ill-wishers of the Iranian people who gathered in front of some polling stations.

The Iranian mission in the US has set up 29 polling stations across the US in cooperation with the Iranian mission to the United Nations and the Iran Protection Bureau in Washington, and non-governmental organizations in the United States received Iranian votes.
