Tehran believes that the “black boxes” of the Ukrainian aircraft of UIA do not contain important information.
Mohsen Bakharvand, Iran’s Deputy Foreign Minister for International and Legal Affairs, said the Iranian investigation into the crash of Ukraine’s International Airlines was almost completed. At the same time, Tehran does not believe that the aircraft’s flight recorders contain any “important” information. On this, on Saturday, June 6, reports Alarabiya.
“The investigation is almost complete, and there is no ambiguity, we know what happened,” Mohsen said.
At the same time, the official added that the analysis of UIA’s flight recorders is the only remaining stage of the investigation.
“We do not believe that the” black boxes “contain any important information that will be useful for the investigation,” he said.
Recall, the Boeing 737-800 of Ukraine’s International Airlines, flying from Tehran to Kyiv, crashed on the morning of January 8 shortly after departure from the Iranian capital. 176 people were killed.
Iran officially admitted that it had erroneously shot down a UIA plane, the Corps of Guardians of the Islamic Revolution – the military branch of the executive branch of Iran – took responsibility for this.
Also, Ukraine stated that if negotiations with Iran on the UIA plane crash near Tehran would come to a standstill, Ukraine and other affected countries would turn to international arbitrations, in particular the UN International Court of Justice.
