President Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine has requested a full investigation, a full admission of guilt and compensation from Iran after the downing of a passenger plane.
Iran had earlier said it mistakenly shot down a plane killing all 176 people aboard and voiced its deep regret, after initially denying it brought down the aircraft in the tense aftermath of Iranian missile strikes on U.S. targets in Iraq.
Zelenskiy said: “Iran has pleaded guilty to crashing the Ukrainian plane. But we insist on a full admission of guilt.”
“We expect from Iran assurances of their readiness for a full and open investigation, bringing those responsible to justice, the return of the bodies of the dead, the payment of compensation, official apologies through diplomatic channels,” he added.
Meanwhile, a large number of Iranian students and seminaries have gathered in front of the British embassy in Tehran, the country’s capital, demanding for the expulsion of UK ambassador, Robert Macaire.
The students are protesting the envoy’s participation and role in last night protest rallies.
