Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky says Ukraine will seek justice in international courts if Iran does not fulfill its promises in relation to issues related to the downing of Ukraine International Airlines' flight PS752, APA reports citing UNIAN.

"I hope that we will be able, eventually, to be able to count on a result-oriented policy from the Iranian government," he said in an interview with The Globe and Mail, a Canadian media outlet.

"Because it is not only that they don't give us back the black boxes. It is also about their [other] promises. They have to give an official apology. They have to pay adequate compensations…. They have to do what they have promised. Otherwise, we will have no other choice – and they know our position – but to resort to the international courts."

According to Zelensky, the Iranian side blamed the pandemic for the delay in delivering the flight recorders to Kyiv, but "this problem cannot wait indefinitely because we have been waiting for quite a long time now."
