MH17: Hisham to seek safe passage for Malaysian team

KUALA LUMPUR - Defence Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein is going to Ukraine to discuss the safe passage of another Malaysian team to scour the crash site.

He said although a ceasefire had been signed it was still very fragile.

"Whether a ceasefire can grant safe passage and whether other countries like Netherlands and Aus­tralia can join the team is what I have to discuss," he said after opening the Lembah Pantai Umno meeting yesterday.

He said Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar and Attorney-General Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail are in Holland to monitor the developments closely.

"After Ukraine, I hope to be in Mos­cow two days later before ending up in Amsterdam to meet the committee that is seeking justice for MH17.
