TEHRAN, Jan. 17 (Xinhua) -- Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman, Abbas Mousavi, said on Friday that the Islamic republic has cooperated with the nations whose citizens were among the victims of Ukraine International Airlines flight PS752 which crashed in the suburban Tehran earlier this month. 

"The Islamic republic has cooperated with the delegations of the countries (involved in plane crash) beyond their expectations," Mousavi said.

He dismissed the allegations, emerged from a meeting attended by representatives from Britain, Sweden, Afghanistan and Ukraine hosted by Canada in London on Thursday, saying that "for public opinion, we announce that all the victims' bodies have been identified and technical investigation and cooperation are underway with all the parties involved."

Canada and the London meeting participants on Thursday asked Iran to get ready "to pay the families of those who died on board the Ukrainian airliner" and help access the prosecution of those responsible in the plane crash.

"The Iranian relevant institutions will continue such cooperation within the framework of rules and regulations," said Mousavi.  

All 176 passengers on board the Ukrainian airliner were killed when Iranian surface-to-air missile hit the plane over Tehran's sky on Jan. 8.
