UNITED NATIONS SECURITY COUNCIL RESOLUTION ON FLIGHT MH17


 


Labor welcomes the UN Security Council’s unanimous adoption of a resolution that condemns the downing of flight MH17 and calls for unimpeded access to the crash site.

 

This is a strong expression of the international community’s collective outrage at this terrible tragedy.

 

Critically, the resolution calls for the bodies of all victims to be accorded the utmost dignity and respect as they are recovered and repatriated.

 

It also underscores the importance of a full independent, international investigation.

 

Now, it is vital that all parties act in accordance with this binding UN Security Council resolution so the perpetrators can be brought to justice.

 

At this difficult time, our thoughts remain with the families, friends, and colleagues of the victims, including 37 Australians.

 

The Opposition continues to offer its full support to the Government.
