This month the Netherlands, Australia, and Russia have held their first meeting on responsibility for shooting down the Malaysian Boeing MH17 in 2014 in Ukraine. This was reported by the heads of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Australia and the Netherlands at a press conference in Sydney, according to NOS.
“The first tripartite meeting was held recently,” said the Dutch minister Stef Blok.
Both diplomats said they could not report the content of the process, because it was confidential, but they were sure that they were doing their best to ensure justice for the victims of the plane crash. The place of negotiations was also not reported. Previously, Vienna was considered as a likely location.
In May last year, the Netherlands and Australia pledged responsibility for Russian role in shooting down Boeing in the sky over the Donbas.
