MH17 plane crash

Asked about the Prime Minister?s (PM) recent engagement with other world leaders on the MH17 crash, the Prime Minister?s Spokesperson (PMS) said that there were a series of calls over the weekend with leaders and he expected more activity in coming days.

When asked about the UN Security Council vote, the PMS stressed the importance of immediate access to the crash site and the need for a thorough investigation.

Asked about other EU members? reliance on trade with Russia, the PMS stated that there may well be costs associated with sanctions, but that we must also consider the cost of not taking action.

When asked about the PM?s next steps in relation to the crash, the PMS said that the PM has always been clear that what counts is action on the ground. He stressed that we still did not have the access that is required and we needed to ensure there was a proper investigation and that the relatives of those who died received answers.
