UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — On Friday, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Vadim Pristiciko announced that he had obtained “important information” from US officials about the plane crash in Iran.
Prestiko, in a tweet on Twitter, said that he and President Volodymyr Zelinsky had met officials at the US embassy on Friday, and had received “important information” about the crash.
He added that this information “will be processed by specialists,” without giving further details.
Earlier Friday, the Ukrainian president called “all international partners”, led by the United States, Britain and Canada, to exchange all information related to the plane accident.
Western leaders say the plane appears to have been inadvertently hit by a surface-to-air missile near Tehran.
While Iran reported that it has convincing evidence that the aircraft did not crash.
On Wednesday, a Ukrainian “Boeing 737” airliner crashed, killing 176 people, including 82 Iranians and 63 Canadians.
On Thursday, Ukrainian officials put forward 3 hypotheses explaining the reasons for the crash of the plane, which was traveling from Tehran to Kiev.
The Ukrainian National Defense and Security Council, in a statement, said that the plane may have “been subjected to terrorist action, or been hit by a surface-to-air missile.”
He added that the third reason that might explain the crash was “the engine was exposed to an explosion due to technical problems.”
