Iran refused to participate in negotiations on the payment of compensation for the UIA plane crash with Ukraine and other countries whose citizens were victims of the tragedy in Tehran on the night of January 8, 2020. The joint statement of the International Coordination and Response Group for the victims of Flight PS752 was published on the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine on November 24, 2021.

“We, Ministers representing Canada, Sweden, Ukraine, and the United Kingdom, express our deep disappointment that the Islamic Republic of Iran has not accepted our multiple requests to meet on November 22, 2021 to negotiate on the matter of reparations for the downing of Flight PS752,” the statement reads.

The foreign ministers of the four affected countries urged Iran to fulfill its international legal responsibility to make full reparations to the Group of Countries and thus reiterate the call to negotiate in good faith and to do so before the end of this year.

Otherwise, the countries whose citizens died in the downed plane, will have to seriously consider other actions and measures to address this issue under international law.

As it was reported earlier, on January 8, the Boeing 737 of Ukraine's International Airlines (PS 752 flight) with 176 passengers aboard crashed in Tehran, not far from Imam Khomeini airport.

11 citizens of Ukraine died in the crash, which left no survivors.

On the morning of Saturday, January 11, the General Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces announced that a missile launched by the Islamic Revolutionary Guards military center hit the Ukrainian Boeing 737 plane.

The results of the decryption of information from the aircraft's flight recorders carried out in France confirmed that the disaster was the result of a missile attack.

On February 20, the Iranian Military Prosecutor's Office announced the completion of the investigation into the downing of Ukraine International Airlines plane.

In May, the Supreme Court of Ontario (Canada) recognized the crash of flight PS 752 of Ukraine International Airlines in Iran as a terrorist act.
