Aviation officials from Iran, Ukraine and Canada held a meeting in Tehran today, Tuesday, on the investigation of the Ukrainian plane crash in Iran last week.
While Iranian state television reported the news, he did not refer to any further details of what was discussed during the meeting regarding this disaster, which killed all 176 people on board.
The Iranian authorities had sent the black box of the affected Ukrainian plane to France for analysis.
The director of the Air Accidents Bureau of the Iranian Civil Aviation Organization, Hassan Rezaei Fer, had said that the capabilities in Iran were insufficient to read the plane's black box memory.
He added: "We asked countries like Canada, France, and the United States to send the necessary software hardware to download the information recorded in the plane's black box to Iran, but our request was rejected."
And Iran admitted last Saturday, that it had shot down the Ukrainian plane by mistake, on Wednesday, January 11, shortly after it took off from Tehran, heading to the Ukrainian capital, Kiev.
