The Australian draft resolution
According to French Ambassador to the UN Gerard Araud, the Australian draft resolution touches upon the issue of “access to the crash site” of the Malaysian Boeing.
The Australian document support efforts to carry out “a thorough and independent investigation of the incident in accordance with the ruling principles of the international civil aviation”. The document demands that militias in eastern Ukraine “abstain from any acts” that may hamper the intactness of evidence, as well as “immediately provide a safe, complete and unhindered access” for the investigators to the crash site.
The Australian draft resolution affirms that the airliner had been downed and demands to bring those guilty to justice. Another key point is the call to all states and forces in the region to refrain from aggression towards civil planes.
