Iran has requested assistance from the French Air Crash Investigation Bureau (BEA) in decrypting the black boxes of UIA's downed Boeing aircraft near Tehran, as Reuters reports with reference to the representative of Iran at the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Farhad Parvaresh.
"The Iranian Civil Aviation Organization recently requested the BEA that flight recorders should be sent by Iran to the BEA in France to be transcribed in the presence of other representatives related to the issue of countries and ICAO, if the BEA has such an opportunity," Parvares said.
At the same time, the BEA said that they did not receive a formal request from Tehran and continue to discuss the possibility of their participation in decrypting the "black boxes" with Iran, Canada and Ukraine.
As we reported before, Iran is ready to negotiate with Ukraine to resolve issues related to the black boxes of the downed airplane PS 752. The Iranian side claimed that during a meeting between the Ambassador of Ukraine to Iran Serhiy Burdilyak with Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of Iran for International and Legal Affairs Mohsen Bakharvand.
