Iran won’t hand over ‘damaged’ black box of Ukraine plane: ministers

The black box of a Ukrainian passenger plane accidentally shot down over Iran last month is damaged but Iran will not hand it over to another country despite pressure for access, top Iranian ministers said on Wednesday, according to state media.

Many of the 176 who perished in the disaster were Iranians with dual citizenship, which is not recognized by Iran. Canada had 57 citizens on board.“If we are supposed to give the black box to others for them to read it in our place then this is something we will definitely not do,” he said.

“The reconstruction of the black box is supposed to take place first and then the reading,” Hatami said.
