“It's unfortunate that the U.S. government and its conscious or unaware companions add salt to the injury of families of the victims in the Iran plane crash by spreading lies and are ready to sacrifice the families of the victims to serve their own goals," Rabiei added.

He was quoted in tweets from Abas Aslani, the editor-in-chief at Iran Front Page.

Abbas Mousavi, Iran’s foreign ministry spokesman, also told IRNA news agency Friday that Iran "has invited both Ukraine and the Boeing company to participate in the investigations."

The report came after the Pentagon and other Western leaders Thursday said intelligence suggested the Ukrainian International Airlines flight was shot down by an Iranian anti-aircraft missile. The crash happened hours after Iran launched more than a dozen ballistic missiles targeting two military bases housing American and coalition troops. That attack was in retaliation for the U.S. airstrike that killed Iranian Quds Force Gen. Qassem Soleimani near Baghdad International Airport in Iraq last week.

Iran previously said Thursday it would not hand over the plane’s black box to Boeing, which is an American company, or U.S. authorities for analysis.

"We will not give the black box to the manufacturer and the Americans,” Ali Abedzadeh, the head of the Civil Aviation Organization of the Islamic Republic of Iran, said, according to BBC News.
