Deputy Foreign Minister of Ukraine Yevhen Yenin stated that Ukraine might appeal to the International Court of Justice (ICJ) on the case of the UIA plane crash in Tehran, as Radio Liberty reported.

“If the talks reach a deadlock then we will be forced to appeal to the international arbitrages, particularly, to the International Court of Justice. The issue is not only about Ukraine but about the united front of the states of Canada, the UK, Sweden, Afghanistan, and Ukraine,” he said.
