KIEV, September 9. /TASS/. Ukrainian Foreign Minister PavloKlimkin and his Dutch counterpart Bert Koenders have discussed several issues during their meeting, including the investigation of MH17 crash over eastern Ukraine.
"The talks with the Dutch foreign minister lasted for two hours instead of the planned 45 minutes - about Donbas, MH17, Ukrainian prisoners in Russia, Dutch presidency in the EU and other issues," Klimkin wrote on his Twitter microblog.
The Malaysian Boeing-777 (MH17) crashed over Ukraine’s Donetsk region on July 17, 2014. The plane was on its way from Amsterdam, the Netherlands, to Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia. Fifteen crewmen and 283 passengers (they were citizens of many countries but most of them were Dutch), died. According to the main version, the plane was shot down by a surface-to-air or an air-to-air missile. The Ukrainian government and the militias of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) accused each other of what happened.
On July 21, 2014, the UN Security Council ordered an all-round and independent investigation into the MH17 crash. The Dutch Security Council took the incident’s investigation under its control.
