Iran has finally admitted that it is responsible for the crash of the Ukrainian plane near Tehran which killed all 176 passengers onboard Wednesday.

The latest development comes after an internal investigation launched by the country into the cause of the crash concluded that the plane was mistakenly brought down by Iran.

According to the country, the move was not a deliberate one as it mistook the Ukraine International Airlines flight PS752 for an American warplane, ABC News can report.

Victims of the crash comprised 82 Iranians, 63 Canadians, 11 Ukrainians, 10 Swedes, four Afghans, three Germans and three British nationals.

Iran’s civil aviation chief had early on dismissed reports suggesting Iran was responsible for the unfortunate incident, saying he is “certain” the plane was not struck by a missile.

In a tweet however, Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif announced investigations indicate Iran was the cause, while blaming America for the misfortune.
