Canada doesn’t put much credibility into interim Iran report on Ukraine jet downing (uk.reuters.com)

OTTAWA (Reuters) – Canada does not put much credibility into Iran’s interim report on the downing of a Ukrainian airliner, which Tehran blamed on a misaligned radar and human error, Foreign Minister Francois-Philippe Champagne said on Monday.

“I don’t put much credibility into that report. It’s not just the result of human error – I think that would be an oversimplification of what really happened,” he said in a phone interview. All 176 people aboard – including 57 Canadians – died after two missiles hit the plane shortly take-off from Tehran.
