Iran agrees to pay compensation for the crash of the Ukrainian plane that was downed in January, Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi said on Thursday.
“Iran agreed to pay compensation for the plane, but the implementation of this issue will take time and has various aspects from a technical and legal point of view”, Mousavi said, according to state-run news agency IRNA.
Reiterating that Tehran is accountable for the incident, he went on to note that “many passengers” of the downed plane were Iranian citizens, adding that talks on Ukrainian citizens are to be continued.
