Following my recent discussions with President Petro Poroshenko of Ukraine, the Ukraine Parliament yesterday ratified a bilateral agreement providing for the deployment of up to 90 Malaysian non-military personnel at the MH17 crash site. They will join the Dutch-led team to facilitate the recovery of remains and conduct the investigation called for in the UN Security Council Resolution 2166.
I welcome this bilateral agreement, which formally authorises the deployment of Malaysian personnel at the site. Now is the time to make it count. I implore all parties to cease fighting and allow the international team of investigators safe and unfettered access to the crash site.
