The United States extends it condolences to the families of those who lost their lives in today’s crash of a Caspian Airlines plane carrying passengers from Tehran, Iran to Yerevan, Armenia.  We are working through the U.S. Embassy in Yerevan and the Swiss Protecting Power in Iran to determine whether any American citizens were on board.
