Iran agrees to send black boxes of shot down plane to Ukraine

Baku, January 19, AZERTAC

Iran will send the black boxes of the Ukrainian passenger plane that its military shot down earlier this month to Ukraine, Tasnim news agency reported.

The Iranian authorities are also prepared for experts from France, Canada and the United States to examine the data from the boxes, the semi-official news agency said.

All 176 people aboard the plane were killed when the Ukrainian International Airlines flight was shot down on January 8 shortly after take-off from Tehran en route to the Ukrainian capital Kyiv.

"With the use of the expertise of the countries of France, Canada and America we will try to read the [flight data recorder] in Kyiv," Hassan Rezaifar, a director in charge of accident investigations at Iran's Civil Aviation Organization, was quoted as saying by the news agency.
