Ukraine will try again for Malaysia Airlines crash tribunal

Posted:

Ukraine's foreign minister says the five countries investigating the downing of a Malaysia airlines plane over Ukraine a year ago will try again in a few months to get Security Council approval for an international tribunal to prosecute the alleged perpetrators.


   Pavlo Klimkin said in an interview Thursday with The Associated Press that one of Russia's arguments for vetoing the resolution to establish a tribunal on Wednesday was that it was premature and "untimely," since the results of the investigation aren't expected until October.


   He said an international tribunal is "the best option politically and legally" because it would be fully accountable, transparent and independent.


   "We're not about to give up on that," Klimkin said. "We will definitely try again, with all kinds of support of (the) international community."
