HAVANA, May 20. /TASS/. US experts will take part in the investigation of the Boeing 737 crash near Cuba’s capital, Havana, Transport Minister Adel Yzquierdo Rodriguez said on Saturday.

"We gave our consent to a technical inspection of the Boeing 737 by US authorities and specialists," the minister was quoted as saying by the Cubadebate news portal.

US air industry giant Boeing earlier offered all necessary assistance in connection with the crash.

The Boeing 737 crashed on Friday right after departing from the Havana Jose Marti International Airport. The plane was en route from Havana to Holguin. It crash-landed in an agricultural zone between the airport and the community of Santiago de las Vegas, about 20 km south of Havana.
