Countries that lost citizens in the accidental downing of a Ukrainian airliner by Iran met Thursday and demanded “five key elements” that must be adhered to, including compensation for victims’ families.

Axar.az informs that, all 167 passengers and nine crew died when the plane was brought down by Iranian missiles, Jan. 8, shortly after takeoff from an airport at Tehran.

The victims were from six countries: Iran (82), Canada (57) Ukraine (11), Sweden (10), Afghanistan (4) and the U.K. (3).

Thursday’s meeting saw officials from those countries, excepting Iran, gather at Canada House in London. Canada chaired the meeting.

“There are many, many questions,” said Canadian Foreign Minister Francois-Philippe Champagne at a press conference following the meeting. “The international community wants answers.”
