Iran’s refusal to enter negotiations on PS752 reparations statement

We, Ministers representing Canada, Sweden, Ukraine, and the United Kingdom, express our deep disappointment that the Islamic Republic of Iran has not accepted our multiple requests to meet on November 22, 2021 to negotiate on the matter of reparations for the downing of Flight PS752.

We remind the Islamic Republic of Iran that it must fulfil its international legal responsibility to make full reparations to the Group of Countries and thus reiterate our call to negotiate in good faith and to do so before the end of this year.

We will continue to stand in solidarity with the families and loved ones of the PS752 victims in their profound loss and suffering. They can be assured that the Coordination Group will remain united in its objective to hold the Islamic Republic of Iran accountable for this tragedy.

Should Iran continue to avoid negotiating with the group, the Coordination Group will have no choice but to seriously consider other actions and measures to resolve this matter within the framework of international law.
