Iran updates ICAO on crashed plane investigation

Tehran, June 2, IRNA – Iran’s Deputy Foreign Minister Mohsen Baharvand briefed International Civil Aviation Organization officials (ICAO) on the latest developments in investigations regarding the crash of the Ukrainian plane last year.

Baharvand had a video conversation with ICAO officials on Wednesday, as Iran and Ukraine would soon hold the third round of talks on the plane crash incident.

He praised ICAO experts on their effective interaction and offering technical consultations on preparing the technical report of the incident.

The deputy foreign minister gave a report on Iran’s measures, including technical investigation, pursuit of criminal dimension and paying compensations to the family of the victims, adding that some of the families have already received compensation.

President of the ICAO Council Salvatore Sciacchitano praised Iran’s efforts and reaffirmed the international body’s position and the necessity of avoiding politicization of the incident.

ICAO Secretary General Fang Liu echoed Sciacchitano’s emphasis on the position of the body and also praised Iran’s measures.

Baharvand arrived in Kiev, Ukraine, yesterday to take part in the third round of talks.

A Ukrainian airliner was downed in January 2020 by a misfiring of Iran's defensive missile system amid the rising tensions in the Middle East region as a result of US's assassinating Iran's top general Qasem Soleimani.
