MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Canadian International Minister Francois-Philippe Champagne has stated that he doesn’t imagine that the lethal downing of the flight PS752 in Tehran earlier this 12 months was brought on by a human error.
“No, I do not [believe Iran’s claims] … we noticed missiles being fired on the airline, and that, for me, raised all kinds of questions,” Champagne stated in an interview with the Canadian Broadcasting Company.
The minister added that Canada will proceed wanting into the incident and research all statements by Tehran on the problem to establish these accountable.
Earlier within the month, the Iranian navy promised to prosecute these accountable for the crash earlier than the one-year anniversary.
On eight January, a Boeing 737 operated by Ukraine Worldwide Airlines crashed quickly after departing from an airport in Tehran. Residents of Iran, Canada, Ukraine, Afghanistan, Germany, Sweden, and the UK have been among the many 176 passengers and crew who died. Iran later revealed that its navy had shot the aircraft down by chance, laying the blame on a human error. In October, Canada introduced it might have its personal forensic group to look at the proof of the crash.
