Joint Investigation Team Report on the Downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17

The United States welcomes the interim report of the Joint Investigation Team on the shoot down of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17.

The Team’s interim findings corroborate Secretary Kerry’s statement in the days following the tragedy that MH17 was shot down by a BUK surface-to-air missile fired from Russian-backed, separatist-controlled territory in eastern Ukraine.

The Team found also that the BUK launcher was transported from Russia to separatist-controlled territory in Ukraine before the incident, and returned to Russia after the launcher was used to shoot down MH17.

While nothing can take away the grief of those who lost loved ones on that tragic day, this announcement is another step toward bringing to justice those responsible for this outrageous attack.

The United States will continue to work with the Joint Investigation Team in its investigation. We call on other states that are in a position to assist to cooperate fully so those responsible are held accountable: https://goo.gl/p47yIn.

On Reports of U.S. Citizens Detained in Yemen

We are deeply concerned by reports of U.S. citizens being unjustly detained by the Houthi-controlled National Security Bureau in Yemen.

Such detentions are unacceptable, put in jeopardy any Houthi efforts to establish that they are credible and responsible interlocutors, and invite serious questions about their commitment to seek a lasting peace for Yemen.

Should any U.S. citizens in Yemen who are being held unjustly be harmed, it would be the responsibility of those organizations, groups, or individuals detaining them.

The United States is monitoring the situation in Yemen very closely and calls on the Houthis to immediately release any U.S. citizens currently being held: https://goo.gl/ufzaBv.

The goal of programs like #AGOA is not only to spur growth among a wide range of sectors, regions and businesses, but also to help distribute the benefits of trade to the people generating that growth: workers and their families: https://goo.gl/l74myg.

Secretary John Kerry spoke this morning via phone with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.

Secretary Kerry expressed grave concern over the deteriorating situation in #Syria, particularly for continued‎ Russian and Syrian regime attacks on hospitals, the water supply network, and other civilian infrastructure in Aleppo. The Secretary made clear the United States and its partners hold Russia responsible for this situation, including the use of incendiary and bunker buster bombs in an urban environment, a drastic escalation that puts civilians at great risk.

The Secretary stressed that the burden remains on #Russia to stop this assault and allow humanitarian access to Aleppo and other areas in need. He informed the Foreign Minister that the United States is making preparations to suspend U.S.-Russia bilateral engagement on Syria – including on the establishment of the Joint Implementation Center – unless Russia takes immediate steps to end the assault on Aleppo and restore the cessation of hostilities: https://goo.gl/wGdiUq.

+Andrew Kelly You think the Russians do not appreciate the fact that their military has limited capacity to go much further than 1500 miles from Mother  Russia?

Then they have to switch to the nuclear option.
