Rezaeifar said Iran asked Canada, France and the U.S. to bring their software and hardware equipment to Tehran to download the data of the black box of the Ukrainian plane, but they did not accept Iran's proposal, according to IRNA.

The evidence: USA officials said they had detected an anti-aircraft missile battery locking onto the plane, followed by an infrared heat signal from two missiles being launched, and then an explosion on the plane.

The Canadian prime minister said he had received intelligence from multiple sources indicating that the plane was shot down by an Iranian surface-to-air missile.

The footage, which The New York Times said it had verified, shows a fast-moving object rising at an angle into the sky before a bright flash is seen, which dims and then continues moving forward.

Shortly after Trudeau issued his statement, The Prime Minister of UK, Boris Johnson made a similar statement on Twitter, calling for a "full, transparent investigation".

"When [President] Zelensky talked to the president of Iran, he specifically asked his Iranian counterpart to make sure that Canada will be able to contribute to this investigation - and that's something that we strongly believe in", Shevchenko said.

"We know this may have been unintentional".

The federal government has deployed a team of consular officials while the Transportation Safety Board says it is deploying two investigators to participate in the investigation into the cause of the crash.

Some 176 people died in the crash, including Iranians, Canadians, Ukrainians, Swedes, Afghans, Germans and British citizens.

Iran denied that the airliner had been hit by a missile.

But Iran's aviation authority chief said the missile theory could not be "scientifically correct" because it was not possible for an airliner to be hit and "continue flying for 60 to 70 seconds".

Abedzadeh also said that the plane's pilot had called the control tower prior to turning back toward the airport but that the engine caught fire in mid-air and the plane crashed about two minutes later.

The United States' transportation safety agency announced that it accepted Tehran's invitation to join the investigation into the crash of Ukrainian International Airlines flight 752.
