He added: “Iranian armed forces admitting their mistake is a good first step.

“We should assure people that it will not happen again” – but said his government was “accountable to Iranian and other nations who lost lives”.

Iran’s judiciary spokesman, Gholamhossein Esmaili, has said some people have been arrested for their role in the incident – but he did not give any further details.

Ukrainian Prime Minister, Oleksiy Honcharuk, said there were 167 passengers and nine crew members on the Ukraine International Airlines flight to Kiev.
