Full United Nations Backing

UN Security council

The United Nations Security Council has unanimously voted to support an Australian-led resolution calling for a full independent inquiry into the Malaysia Airlines disaster in UKRAINE.

The resolution - which was supported by Russia, condemns the downing of the plane which killed 298 people and calls for investigators to be given unlimited access to the crash site.

Addressing the Security Council, Foreign Minister Julie Bishop has expressed Australia's anger at the disaster, and says it's now up to pro-Russian separatists to abide by the resolution.

“Our Nation mourns the death of all the victims,I cannot fathom the pain and anger their Families are experiencing but grief is now accompanied by outrage as we witness grotesque violations at the crash site,this demands a response.”
