Iran will send the black box flight recorders of the Ukrainian jetliner that it accidentally shot down last week to Ukraine for further analysis.
Mr Hassan Rezaeifer, the Iranian head of accident investigations for the civil aviation department, yesterday said that it was not possible to read the black boxes in Iran.
He said French, American and Canadian experts would help analyse them in Kyiv, the Ukrainian capital. He said if that doesn't work the black boxes will be sent to France.
His remarks were carried by the semi-official Tasnim news agency.
Iran's Revolutionary Guard accidentally shot the plane down shortly after it took off from Tehran on January 8, killing all 176 people on board. (AIR)
