MOSCOW, July 22, /ITAR-TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin and Netherlands Prime Minister Mark Rutte have had a number of telephone contacts in the past few days, in the course of which they exchanged opinions on measures linked to organizing an international investigation of the Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 crash in eastern Ukraine, the Kremlin press service said.
“Prime Minister Rutte described the Russian President’s statement as a fruitful contribution to these efforts,” it said. “Putin and Rutte discussed further possible steps in that direction.”
At much the same time, the Netherlands agreed to take on leadership in investigating the circumstances of the Malaysia Airlines’ Boeing 777 crash, Dutch Foreign Minister Frans Timmermans said at a session of the UN Security Council.
