The cause of the accident comes at a time when canada's prime minister, britain's prime minister, and u. s.officials have agreed to claim there was \"a lot of information and intelligence\" to confirm that the plane was shot down by iran's missiles.
Combined with reuters, cnn and other media sources, local time on 9, canada's prime minister trudeau said canada had learned from multiple sources that iran was \"likely unintentional \". British Prime Minister John Johnson echoed the sentiment, claiming there is \"a lot of information\" to confirm.
But it is worth noting that the canadian, uk and us governments have failed to provide so-called \"definitive evidence\" that the crash was the result of iran's \"unintentional\" shooting down.
Iran denied the allegations and formally invited the u. s.to \"act as boeing's representative \", along with other countries where the citizens were killed, to\" be there \"during the commission's investigation into the crash.
8(UPI)-- All 176 passengers aboard a Ukrainian international airline, including 63 Canadian citizens and four British citizens, crashed shortly after taking off from Tehran's Khomeini International Airport.
At a news conference in ottawa on sunday, mr. trudeau said the crash, which carried 63 canadians, was \"likely unintentional \".
Trudeau told reporters that the Canadian side learned from multiple sources of intelligence (including from Canada's own and allies),\" evidence that the plane was shot down by Iran's surface-to-air missile.\"
Asked if the U.S. was responsible for the crash, Trudeau blinked, saying \"a full, complete and credible investigation is needed and it's too early to conclude,\" CNN reported.
British prime minister johnson also issued a statement that day, claiming that there is \"substantial information\" that the plane was shot down by iranian missiles after taking off in tehran.
\"There's a lot of information right now that the plane was shot down by an Iranian surface-to-air missile,\" Johnson said. But it's probably unintentional. We are working closely with Canada and other international partners and what is needed now is a comprehensive and transparent investigation.\"
Earlier in the day, a u. s. official also claimed that washington has been highly identified as an anti-aircraft missile shot down the aircraft. Citing satellite data, he said the Ukrainian plane had been tracked by Iranian radar before the crash.
Three other U.S. officials told Reuters the U.S. government believed Iran had mistakenly shot down the plane. The data showed the plane had been flying in the air for two minutes after leaving Tehran, when U.S. military satellites detected thermal signals from two surface-to-air missiles, an official said. The plane soon crashed.
Notably, the canadian, uk and u. s.governments have failed to provide conclusive evidence that the crash was iran's \"unintentional\" shooting down, except for videos circulating online.
Boeing's radar signal is very similar to that of a large U.S. military transporter, implying that the cause of the plane's crash was a mistake by Iranians in a state of high tension, according to defense expert Riki Ellison, the founder of the U.S. Missile Defense Initiative Alliance, cited by Reuters.
“They (the Iranians) are on high alert, ready to shoot down anything like an American plane," Ellison said." Someone called it a war plane, and that led to a mistake."
In addition, not long after the plane was killed, the ukrainian embassy in iran made a statement that the ukrainian plane crashed in tehran because of a malfunctioning engine and ruled out a terrorist attack. However, after a day later, he said he did not rule out missiles and attacks as the main cause of the crash.
Hassan Rezaeifar, chairman of the Iran Accident Investigation Commission, said he had invited the United States \"as a Boeing manufacturer\" to \"be present\" during the commission's investigation into the crash, CNN cited Iran's Fars news agency on Monday.
In a statement, an Iranian government spokesman denied allegations by U.S. officials that \"all of these reports are psychological battles against Iran... All the countries where the victims are located can be represented in the investigation of the accident.\" Previously, Iran had said it would not allow the United States to participate in the crash investigation.
Earlier, the iranian civil aviation organization released an initial report of the accident, which said the plane had carried out its last periodic maintenance on monday but suffered technical problems shortly after take-off and then crashed.
