Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said that Iran has brought down the Ukrainian plane.
Evidences indicate that Iranian missiles mistakenly shot the plane down.
The leaders of the UK and Canada have asked for full investigation of the plane crash.
Justin Trudeau said while addressing a news conference in Ottawa, “We have intelligence from multiple sources, including our allies and our intelligence. The evidence indicates the plane was shot down by an Iranian surface air missile,”
He added, “This may well have been unintentional,”
“At least 63 Canadians were onboard, and a total of 138 passengers on that flight were connecting to Canada-all people who won’t be coming home to their parents, their friends, their colleagues or their family.”
On the contrary, a spokesperson from Iran justifies the statement.
Ali Rabie, a spokesperson for Iranian President, quoted that Justin’s opinion regarding the crash is impossible.
“We are at a point that satellite images can read our [license] plate numbers, so if there was a missile hitting a plane, then … the satellite footage would have been available,”
“Apart from that, we have the ‘black box’ [flight data recordings]. We have asked the government of Ukraine to come, and we can give them the black box and analyze it together. Everything will become clear that it was just an accident.”
He also said that any country, including Ukraine, can come and open the black box flight data. He said that they find no issue to hide the data.
A Ukrainian plane was crashed in Tehran and over 176 passengers were onboard.
The incident had happened during the ongoing tensions between the US and Iran. Iran had done two missile attacks on the two US airbases in Iraq.
Circumstances suggest that the Ukrainian plane was mistaken for a US warplane.
A satellite detected infrared glitches of two missile launches and glitches of blast, according to US intelligence sources.
