Three members of the permanent Canadian operations team arrived in Iran on Saturday to set up an operational base for the Canadian government after the crash.
Prystaiko said suggestions from Iran that the Ukrainian International Airlines plane was downed as it flew near a sensitive military base during a time of heightened tensions were "nonsense".
Last week, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau confirmed that there were Canadian personnel present at one of the two bases targeted by the Iranians when the attack occurred.
The TSB said later it would deploy a second team of investigators who specialize in aircraft recorder download and analysis "once we confirm where and when this activity will take place". In Vali-e Asr Square in Tehran, a large poster depicting Soleimani was replaced with a billboard mourning the victims of the crash.
Iran admitted over the weekend that one of its own missiles took down the Boeing 737-800, but called it a disgusting mistake.
"In this investigation - and I want to be clear about this - we do not yet fully know what the scope of our role will be", Fox said in a news conference.
Speaking on the sidelines of an official visit to Singapore, Prystaiko dismissed Iran's suggestion that the plane with 176 people aboard flew near sensitive military sites as "nonsense".
"The people of Iran are going to hopefully have the ability at some point to elect their own government and to be governed by the leaders they choose", O'Brien added.
Both family doctors in Iran, Dr. Madani and Dr. Pourshabanoshibi moved to Canada in 2013 in search of a better life. The youngest was a 1-year-old girl.
Mr Trudeau called it a Canadian tragedy.
US House moving to send impeachment to Senate next week
McConnell, indeed, had told Republicans during a private lunch Thursday to expect the impeachment trial to begin next week. The Senate has been in waiting mode as it can't formally begin its trial until the impeachment articles are transmitted.
"We're willing to sit down and discuss without precondition a new way forward, a series of steps by which Iran becomes a more normal country, ' Defense Secretary Mark Esper said on CBS's 'Face the Nation".
The eight are due to travel to Iran on Monday, Champagne said in a series of tweets. In the meantime, she is surrounded by loved ones who travelled from around the world to support her as she grieves.
Meanwhile, said Esper, the United States believes it has disrupted the plots that it says precipitated Soleimani's killing, and expects no further Iranian retaliation.
The Canadian consular presence is out of the norm. Under the 1961 Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations, ambassadors have diplomatic immunity.
Iran's president called the downing of the plane a "disastrous mistake". He called it "a sad day", while insisting the shoot-down was a result of "human error" during a crisis "caused by US adventurism".
The plane took off despite heightened tensions after Iran's missile attack on Iraqi bases housing US troops earlier on the day of the tragedy. The regime initially claimed the crash likely resulted from mechanical problems, then said they would not give up the black box and were even caught bulldozing evidence.
In another tweet, Trump said "The wonderful Iranian protesters refused to step on, or in any way denigrate, our Great American Flag", a reference to footage showing students standing around rather than on a U.S. flag painted on the ground so that people would walk on it.
Videos showed up on social media with people shouting: "Death to the dictator", and "Khamenei have shame".
Expressing his deepest sympathy to the families of the victims of the incident, the Leader urged the relevant officials to take the necessary cautionary measures in order to prevent a recurrence of such incidents.
