Earlier, Mohsen Baharvand, the Deputy Foreign Minister for Legal and International Affairs said Iran has never tried to conceal any details of the catastrophe of Ukraine's Boeing 737, or to limit the rights of families of the deceased. 

"Iran's foreign affairs authority will use all of its opportunities and efforts to protect the rights of the victims", he said. The official thus commented on the second round of talks between Ukraine and Iran in the case of the UIA airplane downed over Tehran in early 2020. 

Foreign Ministry claimed it would organize a meeting with families of victims and Iranian court officials so that they could get all the due information about the court process in this case.
