The Iranian government accepted the blame on Friday. They said that the Ukraine International Airlines Flight PS752 was shot down when was mistaken for a cruise missile after it turned toward a “sensitive military center” of the Revolutionary Guard. Nevertheless, they insisted that the missile didn’t cause the plane’s crash. Prior to that, they totally denied their involvement.
Iranian authorities detained and arrested the United Kingdom Ambassador to Iran shortly after attendance of the Saturday’s protests. British Foreign Minister Dominic Raab called the arrest as a "flagrant violation of international law."
Morgan Ortagus, State Department spokesperson, demanded the apologies to the British government form the Iranian government and called to "respect the rights of all diplomats."
The Iranian regime arrested the British ambassador to Iran. This violates the Vienna Convention, which the regime has a notorious history of violating. We call on the regime to formally apologize to the UK for violating his rights and to respect the rights of all diplomats.— Morgan Ortagus (@statedeptspox) January 11, 2020
