Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau called on Iran to send black boxes of a plane carrying 176 people mistakenly shot to France for analysis.
“Iran does not have the technical expertise and equipment needed to analyze these damaged black boxes quickly,” Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said at a press conference in Ottawa yesterday.
Trudeau said he was encouraging the Iranian government to agree to sending the black boxes of the Ukrainian plane mistakenly shot to France because it is one of the few countries that can analyze data quickly and accurately.
The Bureau of Investigation and Analysis of French Civil Aviation Safety (BEA) has previously announced that it will participate in the incident investigation. BEA helped analyze the flight data of a Boeing crashed in Ethiopia last year.
Iran on January 17 said it would deliver the black box of the crashed plane to Ukraine, but this has not yet happened, prompting Kiev repeatedly urging Tehran to act quickly to ensure the independence and objectivity of the war. investigate.
