Foreign Ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi said on Friday that the tragic incident of Ukraine Air plane crash should not be used as a tool in service of political gains and gestures, APA reports citing IRNA.

In reaction to a meeting among foreign ministers of the five countries whose nationals were among the victims of the recent air crash near Tehran, the spokesman urged all parties to let the affairs proceed in due normal process till the completion of the investigations.

He said that certain statements made about the tragic incident and even the holding of the meeting were astonishing.

"To soothe the pain of the bereaved families, the Islamic Republic of Iran has had very swift and extraordinary cooperation with the dispatched delegations," he said.

All the bodies have been identified and technical investigations involving all parties are underway and will continue by all relevant Iranian institutes up to a point allowed by law, Mousavi added.

However, it is strange to see the Canadian foreign minister offering a statement one day after initial procedures were completed and the identification process of almost all of the bodies was still underway and demand consular access which has already been provided on the very first day of the incident, he said.
