The Iranian state agency ISNA reported that it had been decided in Iran not to give away the “black boxes ” of the UIA plane shot down in the sky over Tehran to Ukraine, but to send it to France for decryption. Local authorities argue that Ukraine is allegedly delaying a response to Iran’s black box proposal, writes Zn.UA columnist for international politics Vladimir Kravchenko in his article.

According to TEH correspondent, Deputy Foreign Minister of Ukraine Yevgeny Yenin, during his meeting on Tuesday with Iranian Ambassador to Ukraine Manouchehr Moradi, shared a letter. The latter stated that “information published in the Iranian media about allegedly stalled negotiations due to” delay from Ukraine “and the intention of the Iranian side to transfer the recorders for decryption to France does not correspond to Tehran’s official position.””
