STATEMENT OF ASEAN FOREIGN MINISTERS ON THE TRAGIC INCIDENT OF MALAYSIA AIRLINES FLIGHT MH 17

ASEAN News - 19-7-2014

ASEAN Member States strongly condemn the downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 in Eastern Ukraine on 17 July 2014. We express shock at the tragic deaths of the 298 people of multiple nationalities on board the airline.

Flight MH17 was flying over non-restricted airspace, and following a flight  path which had been declared safe by the International Civil Aviation  Organisation (ICAO). It is a flight route that is utilised by many international airlines plying the Asia-Europe route.

ASEAN Member States underline that it is imperative that we find out precisely what happened to Flight MH17. We call for a full, independent and transparent investigation into the catastrophe. We emphasise  that investigations must not be hindered.
