WATCH | Iran blames flight 752 crash for poor communication and misalignment:
The French aircraft accident investigation agency BEA is recognized as one of the world’s leading flight recorder reading agencies.
Iran is conducting intense negotiations with Ukraine, Canada and other countries that had citizens on board the downed plane and who demanded a full investigation into the incident.
An official with the Transportation Safety Board of Canada told CBC News in a statement, “We are deploying a team this weekend in Paris and we will have more information on Monday once they are there. ”
In an interim report last week, the Iranian Civil Aviation Organization accused the misalignment of a radar system and the lack of communication between the air defense operator and its commanders of the failure.
