THE HAGUE, August 01. /ITAR-TASS/. One more victim of the the Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 crash has been identified as a Dutch national, the Ministry of Security and Justice of the Netherlands said on Friday.

The ministry said that the victim's family and mayor of the victim's hometown have been informed.

The first victim of the tragedy, also a Dutch national, was identified on July 26.

An international team of some 200 forensic experts is working at a military base in the Dutch city of Hilversum to identify the remains recovered from the wreckage of the airliner that was downed on July 17 in Ukraine killing all 298 passengers and crew.

The remains of 227 crash victims have already been flown to Hilversum from eastern Ukraine. The identification of all bodies may take several months or more.

Forensic experts from the Netherlands and Australia are currently searching for remains of other victims at the site of the Boeing crash.

A spokesman for the Ukrainian security council said earlier on Friday that Kiev is currently holding talks with Donetsk militia to deliver personal belongings of MH17 crash victims to Kiev or Kharkov by train.
