UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelinsky said in a statement on Saturday that his country expects a full investigation, full recognition of guilt and compensation from Iran after a Ukrainian airliner was shot down.
Iran had said earlier that it had unintentionally shot down a plane in an accident that killed 176 people and deeply regretted after it denied first dropping the plane amid the repercussions of Iranian missile strikes on American targets in Iraq.
Zelinsky said, “Iran has admitted guilt in shooting down the Ukrainian plane. But we insist on a full confession of guilt. ”
“We expect Iran to confirm assurances that it is ready to conduct a full and open investigation to bring the perpetrators to justice, return the dead bodies, pay compensation and offer formal apologies through diplomatic channels,” he added.
