Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Friday offered Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy U.S. help in the investigation of a Ukrainian plane crash in Iran, APA reports citing Reuters.

Pompeo said he expressed his condolences for the lives lost in Wednesday’s crash, which Western authorities say might have been caused by a missile. Iran has denied the Boeing 737-800 was downed by a missile.

“We stand with Ukraine and are ready to offer our support and assistance in the ongoing investigation,” he said in a Twitter post.
