Iran's government has decided that the flight recorders from Ukrainian Boeing 737 should be sent not to Ukraine but to France. ISNA news agency reported that.

"Iran will most likely send the black box from Ukrainian plane to France", reads the message.

The decision was made because of the delay in the response from the Ukrainian side.

The analysis of black boxes of the Ukrainian aircraft that crashed in Iran in January was postponed in April due to the coronavirus pandemic. The government of Iran sent Ukraine's Foreign Ministry a draft memorandum on mutual understanding, which foresees that Ukraine and families of the deceased refuse from the right to sue within this case.
