MOSCOW, July 18. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has expressed hope that Boeing 777 tragedy will sober up those who stake on war.
“The tragedy may sober up those who give up obligations over the political process,” Lavrov told Rossiya 24 TV Channel on Friday.
Moscow does not feel the US drive for giving signals to Kiev in support of peaceful resolution in Ukraine, he said.
“International experts should study two black boxes, found on the site of the crash, contrary to what Kiev reported. We’re not going to pick up the black boxes. We’re not going to violate international norms,” Lavrov said.
“This is the matter of the states that are directly related to the tragedy. Their citizens were aboard the airliner. It’s well that [Ukrainian President Pyotr] Poroshenko suggested setting up a state commission to investigate the incident. No one should doubt that an objective and transparent investigation is indispensable,” he said.
The UN Security Council should stand for an immediate, impartial, free and transparent investigation into the Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 crash, Lavrov said. “In a statement coordinated by the UN Security Council, the deepest condolences are to be extended to the next-of-kin,” Lavrov told Rossiya 24 TV Channel. “We back an idea of convening the UN Security Council. A similar session is likely to be held within the OSCE (Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe),” he said.
Lavrov noted that US' unbiased stance on the Ukraine crisis meant that Washington had given the go-ahead to physical extermination of everybody who disagreed with President Poroshenko. “It is a criminal decision. I do hope that it’s going to be changed,” Lavrov said. Moscow does not feel the US drive for giving signals to Kiev in support for a peaceful resolution in Ukraine, the foreign minister added.
