Ukrainian foreign minister plans to visit Netherlands to address MH17 crash probe
Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin plans to visit the Netherlands next week to discuss some aspects of an investigation into the Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 (MH17) crash in the Donetsk region last summer.
"I hope I will be able to visit the Netherlands next week. The main purpose of the visit is to coordinate the strategy of [the investigation] into the Malaysian Boeing crash," Klimkin said at a joint meeting of the Verkhovna Rada committees on European integration and foreign affairs in Kyiv on Wednesday.
Klimkin said that he also planned to discuss the ratification of the Ukrainian-EU Association Agreement by the Netherlands during his visit.
A Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 en route from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur was downed over a part of the Donetsk region controlled by militants on July 17, 2014, killing all the 283 passengers and 15 crewmembers on board.
