UIA plane crash: Ukraine, Canada will jointly demand justice from Iran.

Ukraine and Canada will work closely to obtain appropriate compensation from Iran for the relatives of those killed in the downing of a Ukraine International Airlines passenger jet.

According to an Ukrinform correspondent, the Canadian Foreign Ministry announced this following a meeting between Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba and his Canadian counterpart Marc Garneau.

The meeting took place in Vilnius on July 7 on the margins of the Ukraine Reform Conference.

"In their bilateral meeting, Minister Garneau and Minister Kuleba reaffirmed their commitment to cooperate to seek justice, transparency and reparations for the families of the victims of Ukraine International Airlines Flight 752, which was shot down by Iranian missiles in January 2020," the statement reads.

It notes that "Minister Kuleba also updated Minister Garneau on plans for the upcoming Crimea Platform Summit."

The Ukrainian Foreign Ministry said that Kuleba and Garneau had discussed steps to deepen the special partnership between Ukraine and Canada in the defense, security, political and humanitarian spheres.

"Marc Garneau reaffirmed his country's readiness to continue to support internal transformation in Ukraine to promote its Euro-Atlantic integration, our country's fight against Russian aggression, in particular in the context of training missions for the Ukrainian military and police," the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry said.

On January 8, 2020, the Ukraine International Airlines plane (Flight PS752) heading from Tehran to Kyiv crashed shortly after taking off from the Imam Khomeini International Airport. There were 176 people on board – nine crew members (all Ukrainians) and 167 passengers (citizens of Ukraine, Iran, Canada, Sweden, Afghanistan, Germany, and the UK). All of them died.

On January 11, Iran admitted that its military had accidentally shot down the Ukrainian passenger jet. Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) accepted full responsibility for the downing of the Ukrainian airliner.

On June 7, the Iranian Embassy in Ukraine said the payment of compensation to the relatives of those killed in the UIA plane crash had started.
