Denmark on the Findings of the Joint Investigation Team on Downing of Flight MH17

Mr. Chairperson,

Denmark fully subscribes to the statement made by the European Union. In my national capacity, I take this opportunity to also thank the Permanent Representatives of the Kingdom of the Netherlands and of Australia for their statements and join the many expressions of sincere condolences to the countries and people affected.

The Joint Investigative Team has carried out their work in a professional, independent and impartial way. It has concluded that the BUK missile which shot down the MH17 belonged to the Russian army. Denmark therefore fully supports the call of Australia and the Kingdom of the Netherlands on the Russian Federation to accept its responsibility and to fully cooperate in order for those guilty of this crime to be penalized.

I thank you.
