Iran 'likely' to give Ukrainian airplane black box to France; report

Iran 'likely' to give Ukrainian airplane black box to France; report
IRAN  - Following the Ukrainian's side delay in responding to Iran's offer regarding the Ukrainian plane's black box, the Iranian authorities have decided to send the black box to another country.

According to ISNA, the decision to send the box to another country, such as France was the fault of the Ukrainians, as the Iranians has made an offer to Ukraine regarding the box.


The Tehran-Kiev flight was unintentionally shot down by an Iranian air defense unit shortly after taking off from Tehran on January 8, killing all 176 passengers and crew members on board.


The Iranian operator was reported to have mistaken the Boeing jetliner for a cruise missile.


The incident came as Iranian air defenses were at the highest level of alert following the country's missile attacks against US bases in Iraq, which came in retaliation for Washington's assassination of senior Iranian Commander Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani.


"Following the Ukrainian's side delay in responding to Iran's offer regarding the Ukrainian plane's black box, the Iranian authorities have decided to send the black box to another country, probably France," the ISNA report claimed.


Iran's civil aviation agency previously announced that the flight data recorder and the cockpit voice recorder - commonly known as black boxes - feature cutting-edge technology and Iran lacks the technical facilities to decode them.


The agency requested French and US accident investigation agencies, the BEA and NTSB, respectively, to provide a list of the equipment required to decode the black boxes and to examine the possibility of transferring them to Iran, yet received no answer.
