On February 15, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif met Priestayko on the sidelines of the 56th Munich Security Conference, during which they discussed the situation surrounding the Ukrainian plane crash. Iran and Ukraine agreed that the flight recorders of the aircraft will be opened in the presence of Ukrainian experts.
