International community call for compensation for victims in Iran plane crash


There’s growing pressure on Iran to conduct a transparent investigation into the downing of a passenger plane in which 176 people died.

The Foreign Secretary joined foreign ministers from Canada, Sweden, Ukraine and Afghanistan – who all lost citizens in the crash – in marking a moment of silence for the victims in London today.

Speaking after the event, the Canadian Foreign Minister called on Iran to take full responsibility for the incident and compensate the victims.
