TEHRAN (Iran News) – An Iranian delegation will visit Ukraine on Wednesday and Thursday to discuss compensation for a Ukrainian plane that crashed near Tehran in January, the Ukrainian foreign minister said.
“Given the circumstance of what happened, there are all reasons to ask from Iran to pay the highest price for what it did,” Dmytro Kuleba told a news conference during a visit to the Polish capital Warsaw on Monday, Reuters reported.
Kuleba said Ukraine would represent all countries and groups affected during the talks.
“I cannot disclose the final numbers of compensation … numbers will be the result of the consultations,” he said.
The Kyiv-bound UIA Boeing 737 crashed shortly after taking off from Tehran on January 8, killing all 176 people on board, mostly Iranian and Canadian citizens.
Iran said the plane was hit by an anti-aircraft missile due to human error.
