Dutch, Russia in Talks About Responsibility in MH17 Downing
Friday, 8 February 2019 12:04 WIB | GLOBAL |GlobalMH17,

The Dutch foreign minister says his country is in diplomatic discussions with Russia about whether Moscow bears legal responsibility in the 2014 downing of a Malaysia Airlines jet over Ukraine

Foreign Minister Stef Blok said the initial diplomatic contacts were aimed at paving the way for formal talks and conducted in ''a positive atmosphere.'' He said it was too early to say where and when formal talks might take place.

''There are diplomatic contacts to see if we can begin formal talks about national responsibility for shooting down MH17,''Blok told Dutch reporters.

The Netherlands and Australia said last year they held Russia legally responsible for providing the missile that brought down Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 over conflict-ravaged eastern Ukraine. All 298 passengers and crew members were killed.
