AMMAN — The permanent representatives to the UN of Australia, Belgium, the Netherlands, Malaysia and Ukraine on Sunday recalled their full commitment to bring to justice those responsible for the downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 in July 2014 in Ukraine.

On behalf of their governments, the countries restated their deep sympathy and condolences to the families of victims of the tragic event and to all grieving nations on the second anniversary of the downing of the airliner, according to a statement made available to The Jordan Times.

The countries recalled the concern expressed by the Security Council in Resolution 2166 (2014) about acts of violence that pose a threat to the safety of international civil aviation, the statement said.

The countries also renewed the demand by the Security Council that “those responsible for this incident be held accountable” and reiterated their commitment to achieving that objective, and further recalled the Security Council’s demand that “all States cooperate fully with efforts to establish accountability”.
