Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine Oleksiy Danilov was invited by his Iranian counterpart to travel to Iran in order to jointly review the issue of PS752 investigation, IRNA reports.
According to the outlet, Secretary of the Supreme National Security Council of Iran Ali Shamkhani expressed condolences over the deadly accident and sympathized with the families of the victims during the telephone conversation with Danilov.
Shamkhani said that achieving technical assessments can help finalize the case in an expert and non-political atmosphere.
He also emphasized the importance of preventing other parties to affect the issue and create misunderstanding in the technical and expert investigations process.
As we reported earlier, Canadian lawyers filed a lawsuit on behalf of victims aboard a Ukrainian plane shot down over Tehran last month, looking for at least $1.1 billion in compensation, Reuters informed.
The suit names Iran, its supreme leader, the elite Revolutionary Guards, and others as defendants.
It was filed on January 24 in Toronto, but it is still not clear whether it has been served on defendants in Iran.
