MOSCOW, December 17 (Itar-Tass) — Russia hopes to complete the investigation of the Smolensk tragedy (the Polish Air Force Tu-154 crash) as soon as possible and give Poland the aircraft wreckage, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.
After the talks with Polish Foreign Minister Radoslaw Sikorski on Monday, Lavrov said, “We discussed the pace of the investigation of the Smolensk air crash. It is being conducted in Russia and in Poland. The competent agencies maintain close contacts and fulfil each other’s request within providing legal assistance, including carrying out corresponding examinations.”
“In September Warsaw was given the five volumes of the case at the request of Polish experts. We want to complete the investigation as soon as possible and give Poland the aircraft wreckage. We will take all steps to achieve this goal as soon as possible,” the Russian minister stressed.
