By THARANYA ARUMUGAM – 16 October 2015

KUALA LUMPUR: Deputy Foreign Minister Datuk Seri Reezal Merican Naina assured that not a single stone will be left unturned in the government’s efforts to seek justice for victims of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17. He said the Russian government has requested Malaysian officials to visit Moscow to share their findings into the tragedy. “Russia had extended an invitation to us to attend to a report from their side. And I was told Wisma Putra is looking into it. “What matters most to us is justice to those onboard MH17 who had lost their lives due to the irresponsible and completely unacceptable act of the culprits who shot the plane. “Action must be taken against the perpetrators,” he told reporters after delivering a keynote speech at the 6th Asean Connectivity Symposium here today. The Russian government had expressed dissatisfaction with the Dutch Safety Board (DSB) final report on MH17 citing it to be biased. Hence, Russia had invited all the relevant parties, including Malaysian officials and the International Civil Aviation Organisation to look into its own investigation report, which among others, revealed that the BUK missile mentioned in the DSB does not belong to the Russians.

Moscow has debunked investigations by the Dutch Safety Board which concluded that Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 was shot down by a Russian made BUK missile. ‘Moscow no longer has such missiles since 2011, the year when the warhead was decommissioned’ – Russian ambassador to Malaysia Valery Yermolov said.
