Canada partners take Iran to the UN Council over a downed Ukrainian jet. To hold Iran responsible for the downing of a passenger plane in January 2020 that resulted in 176 fatalities, Canada, Britain, Sweden, and Ukraine filed a formal complaint with the U.N. Aviation Council on Monday.

Since residents of the four countries made up the majority of the deaths, a coordinating group was established to hold Iran accountable.

“Today we have jointly initiated dispute-settlement proceedings before the International Civil Aviation Organization against the Islamic Republic of Iran for using weapons against a civil aircraft in flight,” their statement said.

The four countries said in June last year that they would file a complaint with the International Court of Justice.

During a period of heightened tensions between Tehran and Washington, Iran claims that the Revolutionary Guards unintentionally shot down the Boeing 737 plane and blamed an error by the air defense operator and misaligned radar.
