Engineer Siavash Ghafouri-Azar was returning home with his new wife, Sara Mamani, when the plane crashed. The couple had just bought their first home near the Canadian city of Montreal.
His uncle, Reza Ghafouri-Azar, told the BBC “I cannot come up with words for my kind, dedicated nephew.”
“He has been a very positive and passionate from childhood until his soul’s departure from his body. Rest in peace my dearest side by your beloved wife,” he said.
On the other hand, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau urged Iran on Friday to send the record of the cockpit talks and flight data of the Ukrainian plane that crashed near Tehran to France for analysis, and said that the first remains of the victims should return soon to Canada.
Trudeau said at a press conference in Ottawa that France is one of the few countries that have the ability to analyze the data of the black boxes after they were badly damaged. Iran previously admitted that it had accidentally shot down the plane with a missile, and 176 people died in the disaster, including 57 Canadians.
“There is beginning to agree that … (France) will be the appropriate place to send these two black boxes to him to obtain the correct information from them in a prompt manner, and this is what we urge the Iranian authorities to do”.
Trudeau said that 20 of the families of Canadian victims requested the return of the bodies. He told reporters that he expected the first remains “in the coming days”. He did not elaborate.
