Iran to announce cause of Ukraine plane crash tomorrow

Iran will announce the cause of the Ukrainian Boeing 737 crash after the Air Accident Commission meeting on Saturday, ONA reports citing Fars News agency.

Domestic and foreign parties, whose citizens died in the crash, will take part in the Saturday meeting, the outlet added. They will announce the reason for the accident after reviewing the preliminary report.

Iran insists that the accident occurred due to a technical error, while a number of states, including the UK and Canada, claimed earlier that the aircraft was shot down by an Iranian surface-to-air missile. Ukraine's president has also not ruled out the possibility of a strike, but said it was still unconfirmed.

The crash on 8 January claimed the lives of 176 people citizens of Iran, Ukraine, Canada, the UK, Germany, Sweden, and Afghanistan.
