TOKYO, July 18, /ITAR-TASS/. Kiev has promised to agree with self-defence forces in Ukraine’s southeastern regions on a humanitarian corridor to the crash site of the Malaysian Boeing, Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak said on Friday.
The Malaysian prime minister said he had spoke with Ukrainian President Pyotr Poroshenko who had promised this.
According to earlier reports, the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic and Kiev are in talks on a humanitarian truce over the crash. “Now we are speaking about cordoning off the wreckage of the airliner in order to ensure the access of international organisations to the tragedy site, about removal of the bodies and a search for plane recorders as well as about a possible announcement of a humanitarian truce,” a mediator from the self-proclaimed republic told the Russia-1 television channel on Friday.
“It is a serious tragedy as these accidents are one-off events so we must secure all investigatory international activities in the area of active combat clashes,” the DPR representative said explaining the main purpose for talks with the Kiev authorities.
A Boeing-777 of the Malaysian Airlines that was en route from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur, disappeared from the radars and crashed on Thursday evening near the settlement of Grabovo in Ukraine’s Donetsk region. All those who were onboard the plane - 280 passengers and 15 crew members - died. According to preliminary data, passengers included citizens of the Netherlands, the United States, Great Britain, France, and Malaysia.
