Iran PressIran news: The full text of the statement by the members of the parliament reads as follows:

The response of the Islamic Revolution Guard Corps (IRGC) to the US, the first reaction to the spilling of blood of the pious IRGC commander, Lieutenant General Soleimani, has stunned the world.

The world was witnessing Iran's retaliation against the US that the Ukraine plane crash made us saddened.

We deeply sympathize with the families of the martyrs and share their grief and urge the people to attend their magnificent funeral.

We, Iranian parliamentarians thank Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani's associates for publicly declaring the human error which led to this air tragedy.

The presence of Major General Hossein Salami in today's parliament session indicated that IRGC is determined to sacrifice itself for the nation.

We do not allow the enemies to exploit the mistake of a member of the IRGC family and call on the authorities to investigate the possibility of sabotage.

We also want those who lost their lives in the incident to be considered martyrs.
