“We will request that the Secretariat hold a briefing on progress in the implementation of [UN Security Council] Resolution 2166 [which requires an independent investigation into the cause of the accident]. A month has passed since the Malaysian liner was destroyed. Paragraph 13 of the resolution requires the secretary-general to provide the Security Council with investigation progress reports. We hope that this will happen already today,” the diplomat said, responding to a question from ITAR-TASS.
The plane en route from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur crashed in Ukraine’s eastern Donetsk region 60 km from the Russian border on July 17 and all of the 298 people aboard died.
The Security Council called for an immediate end to all armed hostilities in the crash area and urged the militiamen in eastern Ukraine to secure the crash site and give the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission access to it.
It also called for bringing to justice all persons responsible for the accident.
The resolution condemns in the strongest possible terms the actions that had caused the plane to be shot down and called for a through and independent investigation of the accident in accordance the international civil aviation guidelines.
