After a meeting in London on Thursday, the foreign ministers of Canada, the U.K., Afghanistan, Sweden and Ukraine said Iran should accept "full responsibility" and pay the compensation.
They also urged a thorough international investigation.
Among the 176 victims on board, 57 people were from Canada, 17 from Sweden, 11 from Ukraine, four from Afghanistan and four from the U.K.
