"In case Iran did not accept its guilt, perhaps we would have to turn to the UN Security Council. But since the situation developed quite dynamically, I just can't see what's the goal of those who believe there's a need to convene UN Security Council", he said.

Yelchenko added that on January 9, Ukraine already brought up this issue. Then, Ukraine's Deputy Foreign Minister Serhiy Kyslytsia read the special statement on the behalf of Ukraine, Germany, Canada and Sweden, some of the countries that lost their citizens in the tragedy.
