Canada is forming its own forensic team to examine evidence and information on a Ukrainian plane shot down by Iran when 176 people died.
This was reported in the office of Canadian Foreign Minister Francois-Philippe Champagne, reports Associated Press.
вЂњThis is another step towards uncovering the truth, bringing the Iranian regime to justice and seeking justice for the families of victims. We will spare no effort to achieve justice,вЂќ Champagne said in a statement.
The Canadian Foreign Ministry said a team of experts will collect, systematize and analyze all available information, evidence, and intelligence about the January 8 disaster in Tehran and advise the Government of Canada on its accuracy.
The crash of the Ukrainian Boeing flight PS752 took place in the early morning of January 8, almost immediately after departure from Tehran вЂ” 167 passengers and nine crew members were killed, including 63 Canadian citizens.
On the fourth day after the tragedy, January 11, Iran officially admitted that it accidentally shot down a Ukrainian Boeing, although it had previously denied involvement.
