MH17: Ukraine's Poroshenko seeks to reassure the Netherlands

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko and Dutch Foreign Minister Frans Timmermans have both called for justice for the MH17 victims.

At a meeting in Kyiv, Poroshenko told Timmermans: “I want to reassure you that the Ukrainian government, on my orders, is doing everything possible to ensure that the investigation into the circumstances of the terrorists’ attack will be conducted under the auspices of the International Civil Aviation Organisation and will be as transparent as possible.”

Timmermans stressed the importance of free access to the crash site for international investigators.

“This tragedy has really rocked the Netherlands to its very foundation. My first priority is to bring our people home. Families want to bury their loved ones,” he told Poroshenko at the meeting.
