Canada welcomes Iran’s decision to finally download the data of the flight recorders of Ukraine International Airlines Flight PS752 at France’s Civil Aviation Safety Investigation and Analysis Bureau, Global Affairs Canada has reported.

“We welcome today’s announcement at the International Civil Aviation Organization Council meeting that Iran has finally formally committed to July 20 for the download of the data of the flight recorders of Ukraine International Airlines Flight PS752 at France’s Civil Aviation Safety Investigation and Analysis Bureau,” the Honourable François-Philippe Champagne, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Canada, said in a statement on June 26.

He emphasized that Canada will continue to hold Iran to account and seek accountability, transparency, justice and compensation for the victims of this tragedy, including a thorough, credible and transparent investigation.

On January 8, 2020, Ukraine International Airlines Flight PS752 was shot down near Tehran by an Iranian surface-to-air missile, killing 176 people, including nine crew members (all Ukrainians) and 167 passengers (citizens of Ukraine, Iran, Canada, Sweden, Afghanistan, Germany, and the UK).
