… The Shift in Human Nature

You're starting to see integrity change. Awareness recalibrates integrity, and the Human Being who would sit there and take advantage of another Human Being in an old energy would never do it in a new energy. The reason? It will become intuitive, so this is a shift in Human Nature as well, for in the past you have assumed that people take advantage of people first and integrity comes later. That's just ordinary Human nature.

In the past, Human nature expressed within governments worked like this: If you were stronger than the other one, you simply conquered them. If you were strong, it was an invitation to conquer. If you were weak, it was an invitation to be conquered. No one even thought about it. It was the way of things. The bigger you could have your armies, the better they would do when you sent them out to conquer. That's not how you think today. Did you notice?

Any country that thinks this way today will not survive, for humanity has discovered that the world goes far better by putting things together instead of tearing them apart. The new energy puts the weak and strong together in ways that make sense and that have integrity. Take a look at what happened to some of the businesses in this great land (USA). Up to 30 years ago, when you started realizing some of them didn't have integrity, you eliminated them. What happened to the tobacco companies when you realized they were knowingly addicting your children? Today, they still sell their products to less-aware countries, but that will also change.

What did you do a few years ago when you realized that your bankers were actually selling you homes that they knew you couldn't pay for later? They were walking away, smiling greedily, not thinking about the heartbreak that was to follow when a life's dream would be lost. Dear American, you are in a recession. However, this is like when you prune a tree and cut back the branches. When the tree grows back, you've got control and the branches will grow bigger and stronger than they were before, without the greed factor. Then, if you don't like the way it grows back, you'll prune it again! I tell you this because awareness is now in control of big money. It's right before your eyes, what you're doing. But fear often rules. …

Dutch constitution will finally include e-mail


(Photo of the constitution of 1814 by
Grondwetfestival.nl, used with permission)
Article 13 of the Dutch constitution declares a secrecy of correspondence, meaning the government and others are not allowed to snoop on your mail.

However, there is an unfortunate loophole: the law specifically talks about paper mail. E-mail was never included and therefore exists in a legal limbo.

According to Internet lawyer Arnoud Engelfriet, the council of ministers of the Netherlands has now proposed a change in the constitution that will not actually name e-mail, but which will make the phrasing of Article 13 more generic. A change in the constitution requires two consecutive parliaments to vote for that change, the idea being that the change can be made an issue in the elections.

Not that it matters much, as the Dutch constitution, which is now 200 years old, is more of a guideline than law. Judges are not allowed to ignore laws based on their constitutionality. The constitution may be said to have a normative function, for example, it could show courts how to interpret a vague law, but a 2009 study by the national government claims that this normative function is eroding (PDF). Instead a societal function is emerging, as the constitution aims to hold up a mirror to the citizens of the kingdom and to show us what our shared values are.

A minute's silence for the MH17 dead as first coffins reach Eindhoven

DutchNews.nl, Wednesday 23 July 2014

Two planes carrying the first of the 40 victims of last week’s air disaster in Ukraine arrived at Eindhoven airport on Wednesday afternoon, in a somber ceremony attended by King Willem-Alexander, queen Maxima and other dignatories.

Flags were flying at half mast throughout the country as the Last Post sounded. A minute’s silence was then observed for the 298 people who died when the Malaysia Airways Boeing 777 was brought down close to the Russian border.

‘Silence was silence at the airbase. The only sound was the tick of the rope on a flagpole,’ said Nos reporter Martijn vander Zande using Twitter.

Coffins

The 40 victims in simple wooden coffins were unloaded from the two planes one by one in slow ceremony and taken to one of the waiting hearses.

From Eindhoven, the hearses will proceed to an army base in Hilversum whether forensic specialists will begin the task of identifying the victims.

Australian government envoy Angus Houston told the BBC said the ceremony was intended to give the victims the ‘respect and dignity they deserve’ after a ‘tragedy of unspeakable proportions’.

Outside the airport, hundreds of people were waiting for the procession at the side of the road and on motorway bridges.

Public mourning

It is the first time the Netherlands has declared a day of public mourning since the death of queen Wilhelmina in 1962.

The public broadcasters adapted their programming to reflect the occasion. All three public television stations and six radio stations provided live coverage of the arrival of the first victims as did dozens of other broadcasters around the world.

This evening there will be a joint church ceremony at the Sint Joris church in Amersfoort with the theme ‘unity in grief’. The service will also be broadcast live on tv. A number of silent processions have been organised around the country for Wednesday evening.

Flags at half mast as the Netherlands mourns MH17 air crash dead

Flags on government and private buildings are at half mast in the Netherlands on Wednesday at the start of an official day of mourning to remember those who died on flight MH17.

It is the first time the Netherlands has declared a day of public mourning since the death of queen Wilhelmina in 1962.

In total, 193 Dutch nationals died when the Boeing 777 travelling from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur was brought down in rebel-held Ukraine, close to the Russian border a week ago. Many were families leaving for their summer holiday. The dead include 80 teenagers, children and babies.

Planes

The first planes bringing back the bodies of 50 victims are expected to arrive at Eindhoven air base at 16.00 hours. Church bells will be rung for five minutes prior to the landing.

Relatives, king Willem-Alexander, queen Máxima, prime minister Mark Rutte and deputy premier Lodewijk Asscher will be present at the airport.

A one-minute silence will be observed shortly after the planes' arrival all over the country. All aircraft movements will be halted at Schiphol airport for a short period and public transport will also pause.

Coffins containing bodies will then be moved in a procession of hearses to army barracks in Hilversum for identification. Parts of the A2 and A27 motorways will be closed as the procession passes.

Broadcasters

The public broadcasters have adapted their programming to reflect the occasion. All three public television stations and six radio stations will provide live coverage of the arrival of the first victims, Nos television says.

This evening there will be a joint church ceremony at the Sint Joris church in Amersfoort with the theme ‘unity in grief’. The service will also be broadcast live on tv. A private individual has organised a silent march in Amsterdam at 20.00 hours.

MPs from the VVD, ChristenUnie and SGP, among others, had urged parliament to proclaim a national day of mourning earlier but prime minister Mark Rutte said such a day was not in keeping with Dutch tradition.

Widodo wins Indonesian presidency as rival withdraws

Indonesia's election commission has announced Joko Widodo as winner of this month's presidential polls. Hours before the finalized results, rival runner Prabowo Subianto withdrew from the race, claiming electoral fraud.

Deutsche Welle, 22 July 2014


Jakarta governor Joko Widodo, popularly nicknamed "Widodo," claimed just over 53 percent of the votes, according to the final count on Tuesday. Voter turnout was over 70 percent, with almost 133 million valid ballots cast in total across the giant archipelago.

Police were out in force in
Jakarta after a heated election
The results largely corroborated the unofficial "quick counts" released after the July 9 election, most of which gave Jokowi a slim lead of up to 5 percent.

After a tense election campaign, Jokowi had called on his supporters to stay home in the case of a victory on Tuesday - to avoid potential clashes with supporters of his main rival, former general Prabowo Subianto. Jakarta police mobilized in force on Tuesday anticipating possible clashes.

Rival quits at last second

Subianto withdrew from Indonesia's presidential election process hours before the final results, citing widespread fraud.

Prabowo Subianto said he did not accept,
 but would not appeal, the results
"We reject the 2014 presidential election that was legally flawed, and therefore we withdraw from the ongoing process," he said in the capital Jakarta. Prabowo said complaints from his camp about "massive, structural and systematic cheating" were ignored by officials.

"We have found instances of electoral fraud involving organizers that make this election unfair," he said, before urging his supporters to remain calm. "We will base our struggle on the constitution and laws."

Prabowo had previously called on the election commission to stop the counting process until all allegations of electoral fraud were investigated.

Prabowo's withdrawal could open him up to prosecution: candidates agree not to withdraw once they have signed up to run for the presidency. Under Indonesian election laws, pulling out of the race can theoretically be punished by up to five years in jail and a fine of up to 50 billion rupiah (3.18 million euros, $4.31 million).

Wednesday July 23 has been designated an official day of mourning to remember those who died on flight MH17, prime minister Mark Rutte has announced.

Flags will be at half mast on government buildings and church bells will be rung for five minutes prior to the landing of the first plane bringing back the first bodies of the dead.

The planes is expected to arrive at Eindhoven air base at 16.00 hours.

Relatives, king Willem-Alexander, queen Maxima, prime minister Mark Rutte and deputy premier Lodewijk Asscher will be present at the airport. A one-minute silence will be observed shortly after the arrival.

MPs from the VVD, ChristenUnie, SGP among others had urged parliament to proclaim a national day of mourning earlier but prime minister Mark Rutte said such a day was not in keeping with Dutch tradition.

The Netherlands does commemorate important occasions such as the 1953 floods which killed nearly 2,000 people but rarely declares official days of mourning. The last time this happened was when queen Wilhelmina’s died in 1962.

193 Dutch nationals died when the Boeing 777 traveling from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur was brought down in rebel-held Ukraine, close to the Russian border. Many were families leaving for their summer holiday. The dead include 80 teenagers, children and babies.

MH17 bodies expected Wednesday, IDs could take months: Dutch PM

MH17 bodies expected Wednesday, IDs could take months: Dutch PM

The Hague (AFP) - The first bodies from the MH17 crash in Ukraine will be flown on Wednesday to the Netherlands, where their identification could take months, Prime Minister Mark Rutte said.

"Tomorrow the first plane (with bodies) will leave for Eindhoven" in the southern Netherlands, Rutte told journalists after the bodies arrived in Ukraine's Kharkiv town from rebel-held territory.

"Preparations will be made in Kharkiv so that identification can be done in the Netherlands as well as possible," Rutte said.

"As soon as a victim is identified, first and foremost the family will be informed and no one else. That can take weeks or months."

Of the 298 people killed when Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 was brought down over Ukraine, allegedly by a missile fired by pro-Russia rebels, 193 are Dutch, and the Netherlands is in charge of their identification.

Rutte said that Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) monitors in Ukraine had indicated around 200 bodies were aboard the train, while unconfirmed reports said it contained 282 bodies.

"As soon as some victims are ready to be transported, the plane will leave," Rutte said, confirming that all the bodies would be brought to the Netherlands and then flown on to their respective countries.

The Dutch defence ministry said that a Dutch C-130 Hercules and an Australian C-17 transport plane would create an "airbridge" between Kharkiv and Eindhoven to bring the bodies back.

Australia, which lost 37 citizens in the crash, is also sending forensics experts and other investigators to Eindhoven and Ukraine, the defence ministry said in a statement.

Once arrived at Eindhoven, the bodies will be taken to the Kaporaal van Oudheusden military barracks in Hilversum, around 100 kilometres (65 miles) away.

Rutte declined to discuss possible sanctions against Russia, which allegedly supplied the missile that brought down the plane, saying European Union foreign ministers including the Netherlands' Frans Timmermans were currently discussing the matter in Brussels.

"The Netherlands is not opposed to sanctions," Rutte said.

He confirmed that the Netherlands would lead the crash investigation, which normally would have fallen to Kiev though it does not control the area around the crash site.

"We will turn over every last stone, and I can tell you that the Netherlands has, at Ukraine's request, been given the lead role in the investigation," he said.

'A political game with bodies': Dutch foreign minister on MH17 at UN

DutchNews.nl, Tuesday 22 July 2014

Minister Frans Timmermans
(NOS/Reuters)
Dutch foreign minister Frans Timmermans has made a very strongly worded statement to the United Nations Security Council in New York about the downing of Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 over Ukraine and the death of 298 people.

‘The last couple of days we have received very disturbing reports of bodies being moved about and looted for their possessions,’ the foreign minister said.

‘Just for one minute I am not addressing you as representatives of your countries but as husbands and wives, as fathers and mothers,' Timmermans said.

'Just imagine that you first get the news that your husband was killed, then within two or three days you see images of some thug removing the wedding ring from their hands. Just imagine that this could be your spouse.’

Toys

‘The images of children’s toys being thrown around, suitcases opened and passports shown make us furious,’ he went on.

The minister condemned the slowness of the recovery process. ‘To my dying day I will not understand that it took so much time for the rescue workers to be allowed to do their difficult jobs and that human remains should be used as a political game,’ he said.

‘If somebody here around the table talks about a political game this is the political game which is being played with human remains and it is despicable.'

Resolution

Earlier, the Security Council unanimously adopted a resolution calling on those responsible ‘be held to account and that all states cooperate fully with efforts to establish accountability’.

The Security Council also demanded the militia allow ‘safe, secure, full and unrestricted access’ to the crash site. Russia also supported the motion.

Timmermans thanked the security council for its united condemnation of the downing of flight MH17 and repeated again that the Netherlands will not rest until all the facts are on the table.

Train

Earlier, Dutch prime minister Mark Rutte said a train carrying around 200 body bags had begun its journey from rebel held parts of Ukraine to Kharkiv, which is in Ukrainian government hands.

From there they will be flown back to the Netherlands for identification, probably later on Tuesday.

However, Dutch media reported on Tuesday morning the train remained in the rebel held city of Donetsk.

Black box

In addition, a senior Ukrainian separatist leader has handed over the plane's black boxes to Malaysian experts, the BBC reported. The head of the Malaysian delegation told reporters the recorders were ‘in good condition’.

European Union foreign ministers will later on Tuesday discuss further steps against Russia.

However, according to Reuters ‘the most they are expected to do is to speed up implementation of sanctions against individuals, and possibly companies, agreed in principle last week before the plane was brought down’.


UN Security Council demands safe access for MH17 investigators

The UN Security Council has passed a resolution calling for an international investigation into the downing of flight MH17 over eastern Ukraine. Permanent member Russia was among those who supported the resolution.

Nations headquarters, Monday, July 21, 2014. The resolution was adopted by a
unanimous vote. Photograph: Seth Wenig/AP

The resolution, which had been drafted by Australian diplomats, was adopted unanimously on Monday.

It condemned the apparent shooting down of the Malaysia Airlines passenger jet over rebel-held eastern Ukraine last week. It demanded that those responsible "be held to account and that all states cooperate fully with efforts to establish accountability." It also called on all armed groups in the region to ensure "safe, secure, full and unrestricted access" for international investigators.

The passage of the resolution followed a weekend of intense negotiations and widespread pressure on Russia to support the measure.

Obama addresses Putin

This came just hours after US President Barack Obama used a statement to reporters at the White House to demand that his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin, use his considerable influence over separatist rebels in eastern Ukraine to ensure investigators full access to the wreckage of flight MH17.

Obama said it was clear that pro-Russian separatists who control the territory where flight MH17 came down last week were continuing to prevent international investigators from gaining full access to the wreckage.

"President Putin says that he supports a full and fair investigation, and I appreciate those words, but they have to be supported by actions," Obama added.

While he didn't directly raise the possibility of imposing fresh, tougher sanctions on Russia, Obama indicated that these could be in the offing. He said that if the Kremlin continued to back the rebels in eastern Ukraine, "the costs for Russia's behavior will only continue to increase."

Obama was speaking shortly before Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak announced in a televised statement that he secured an agreement with the rebels under which the bodies of the victims would be handed over to Dutch officials and that the black boxes would be turned over to a Malaysian team.

Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 crashed last Thursday, killing all 298 people on board. Of these, 193 were Dutch nationals.

Air disaster has left a 'deep wound' in Dutch society, says king

King Willem-Alexander has spoken of his sorrow at the death of so many Dutch nationals in last week's air disaster in Ukraine.

Speaking to the nation after he and queen Maxima met relatives of those who died at a special gathering in Nieuwegein, the king talked of the inner strength which people show at times of tragedy.

‘We have been deeply moved by the harrowing personal stories from people who have lost loved ones,’ the king said. ‘Their sorrow, their powerlessness and their despair cuts into our souls.’

Sadness

The king said he shared the wish of the relatives to gain clarity about the cause of the disaster. ‘We know this will not repair their loss. The sadness is immense. The only thing we could do today is listen to their stories,’ he said.

The impact of the crash has left a deep wound in society and the scars will be visible and felt for years, he said.

The strength and compassion needed at times like these are ‘values which our country has at crucial moments,’ the king said, and went on to praise everyone involved with helping the relatives and friends of the victims.

‘Family, friends, neighbours, colleagues and club mates, you are now so needed,’ the king said.

MH17: Dutch experts arrive at crash scene as heavy fighting breaks out

Investigators say train being loaded with bodies will soon be moved as Ukraine launches offensive near Donetsk station

As Dutch forensic experts arrived at the scene of the Malaysia Airlines crash on Monday and promised that the train being loaded with the victims' bodies would be moved before the end of the day, heavy fighting broke out between the Ukrainian army and rebels on the outskirts of Donetsk, the main regional city and the hub of the insurgency.

There has been widespread international anger that the rebels have failed to allow proper access to the crash site to investigators, and suspicions that they have seized the black boxes and are attempting to destroy evidence.

But it was the Ukrainian army that seemed intent on disrupting expert work on Monday, as they apparently launched an offensive against rebel positions close to Donetsk railway station, as well as in other towns across the region.

"There is work on clearing approaches to the city, on destroying checkpoints of the terrorists. If there are explosions in the middle of the city, then it is not Ukrainian soldiers," said Andriy Lysenko, a spokesman for Ukraine's national security council, in Kiev.

Adding to the chaos, Lysenko denied that the Ukrainian army was responsible for explosions in central Donetsk but said a "self-organised group" of partisans could be engaging the rebels.

"We have strict orders not to use air strikes and artillery in the city. If there is fighting in the city, we have information that there is a small self-organised group who are fighting with the terrorists," he said.

Vladislav Seleznev, spokesman for Ukraine's anti-terror operation, said the action was "a planned offensive" to push rebels away from Donetsk airport, and insisted that aviation and artillery were not being used against civilian residences.

However, there were reports of civilian casualties. The Guardian saw one 18-storey building where a shell had hit the courtyard, smashing all the windows on the first nine floors and destroying parked cars.

Trucks of rebels could be seen travelling past the station as reinforcements. Gunfire and artillery rounds were audible. One rebel fighter claimed the Ukrainians had tried to take the area around the train station with tanks but the rebels were fighting back.

The Ukrainian president, Petro Poroshenko, ordered a ceasefire across a 40km (24-mile) radius from the crash site, but this does not include Donetsk, which is further out.

Monitors from the Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) have arrived at the crash site, where they appear to be observing the situation under the watch of the rebels. So far the observers are still being confined to the main path into the fields where most of the debris is. They do not appear to have been allowed to move from the main path. The rebels have cordoned off the press into a separate section to allow the observers to do their work.

In the town of Torez, where bodies of the crash victims are being loaded on to refrigerated train carriages, OSCE monitors and the small team of Dutch forensic experts viewed the body bags in the three train carriages and said the train should be moved on Monday. Peter Van Vliet, one of the experts, said the storage of the bodies was acceptable.

"I just want the train to move as soon as possible to a place where we can do our technical work," he said, adding that it was not possible to do in this location. He was unable to confirm the number of bodies because they would have to walk on them and, he said, that would show no respect.

In a conversation between the investigator Alexander Hug and one of the rebels escorting the officials, Hug said: "We need to get the train out of here today. To wait any longer than today will not be good for anything – for the experts, or for the families."

Ukrainian authorities say they have prepared for the bodies to be brought to Kharkiv, a major city in the east of the country. However, the fighting at Donetsk railway station could complicate any transfer of the bodies by rail.

There has been a flurry of international criticism of Vladimir Putin over Russian support for the rebels and claims that MH17 was shot down using a missile system provided by Russia.

In an unusual video address, Putin said on Monday that "nobody should – and no one has the right to – use this tragedy to achieve selfish political ends. Such events should not divide people but unite them."

Putin 'will help recover bodies, black boxes': Dutch PM

Yahoo – AFP, 20 July 2014

Dutch Prime minister Mark Rutte gives a press conference in The Hague, on
July 20, 2014, about the situation of the crashed Malaysia Airlines flight MH17
in eastern Ukraine

Russian President Vladimir Putin on Sunday promised Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte he will help retrieve bodies and black boxes from the Ukrainian rebel-held crash site of flight MH17.

Putin, who is believed to exert influence on the pro-Russia rebels, made the promise in his third conversation with Rutte since Thursday's crash, the Dutch government press service RVD said, amid growing international anger over the stranded bodies.

"Besides allowing unrestricted access to the crash site, the conversation focused on practical matters, namely the departure of the train that has many bodies and the handing over of the black boxes," a spokeswoman for the government press service RVD told AFP, asking not to be named.

"On both points Putin promised his full cooperation," the spokesman said.

Most of the 298 people on the Malaysia Airways flight, likely brought down by a pro-Russian rebel missile, were Dutch.

Around 200 bodies taken from the site in eastern Ukraine are being held in refrigerated trains nearby, pending the arrival of international investigators.

Ukrainian rebels have said that they have the black boxes, crucial in the crash investigation.

“… The Shift in Human Nature

You're starting to see integrity change. Awareness recalibrates integrity, and the Human Being who would sit there and take advantage of another Human Being in an old energy would never do it in a new energy. The reason? It will become intuitive, so this is a shift in Human Nature as well, for in the past you have assumed that people take advantage of people first and integrity comes later. That's just ordinary Human nature.

In the past, Human nature expressed within governments worked like this: If you were stronger than the other one, you simply conquered them. If you were strong, it was an invitation to conquer. If you were weak, it was an invitation to be conquered. No one even thought about it. It was the way of things. The bigger you could have your armies, the better they would do when you sent them out to conquer. That's not how you think today. Did you notice?

Any country that thinks this way today will not survive, for humanity has discovered that the world goes far better by putting things together instead of tearing them apart. The new energy puts the weak and strong together in ways that make sense and that have integrity. Take a look at what happened to some of the businesses in this great land (USA). Up to 30 years ago, when you started realizing some of them didn't have integrity, you eliminated them. What happened to the tobacco companies when you realized they were knowingly addicting your children? Today, they still sell their products to less-aware countries, but that will also change.


What did you do a few years ago when you realized that your bankers were actually selling you homes that they knew you couldn't pay for later? They were walking away, smiling greedily, not thinking about the heartbreak that was to follow when a life's dream would be lost. Dear American, you are in a recession. However, this is like when you prune a tree and cut back the branches. When the tree grows back, you've got control and the branches will grow bigger and stronger than they were before, without the greed factor. Then, if you don't like the way it grows back, you'll prune it again! I tell you this because awareness is now in control of big money. It's right before your eyes, what you're doing. But fear often rules. …”

'We have one aim, to get our people back,' Dutch prime minister says

DutchNews.nl, Sunday 20 July 2014

Prime minister Mark Rutte (NOS)
The Netherlands will take the lead in identifying victims of flight MH17, brought down over Ukraine with the loss of 298 lives, prime minister Mark Rutte told a news conference on Sunday.

A Dutch defence ministry plane is heading for Charkov in Ukraine on Sunday evening carrying people and equipment to establish a coordination centre, Rutte said.

‘I have spoken today with [German chancellor Angela] Merkel and [British prime minister David] Cameron and this evening I will have contact again with [Russian president Vladimir] Putin,’ Rutte said. ‘Everything is focused on getting the bodies back.’

Dutch foreign minister Frans Timmermans is flying to New York on Sunday evening for a meeting of the United Nations security council. There he will call for speedy recovery of the bodies and ‘getting to the very bottom of this terrible event’, Rutte said.

Military intervention

Rutte did not answer directly a question from journalists asking if military intervention was an option to ensure the bodies of the dead can be recovered.

‘The cabinet has one aim and that is to get our people home,’ he said. Asked if he saw a role for Nato, Rutte said ‘no’.

On Monday there will be a closed meeting for relatives of the 193 Dutch nationals who died. King Willem-Alexander, queen Maxima, the prime minister and other ministers will be at the meeting, broadcaster Nos said.

There will also be a briefing for MPs later on Monday.

Dutch MPs return from break to discuss MH17 crash, Russia's role

DutchNews.nl, Sunday 20 July 2014

Minister Timmermans (NOS/AFP)
Emergency workers at the site of Thursday’s air crash in Ukraine in which 193 Dutch nationals died say they have recovered 196 bodies so far.

However, there are reports that some of the bodies have been taken away by Russian militia in the area and it is unclear if rescue workers are now being given greater access to the disaster area.

According to the BBC, at least 160 bodies have been loaded onto refrigerated rail wagons in the nearby rebel-held town of Torez, the broadcaster quotes the OSCE as saying.

Priority

On Saturday, Dutch prime minister Mark Rutte told reporters it is time for Russian president Vladimir Putin to exercise his influence on the pro-Russian militia.

‘I want to see results in the form of unhindered access and speedy recovery of the victims’ remains. This is now priority number one,’ Rutte said.

A number of Dutch MPs are cutting short their summer recess following the MH17 air disaster. The plane was flying from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur and was carrying many families going on holiday.

Members of parliament’s foreign affairs committee want to be briefed by foreign affairs Frans Timmermans and justice minister Ivo Opstelten, broadcaster Nos reported. Timmermans returned to the Netherlands from Kiev in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Defence

Meanwhile Dutch defence minister Jeanine Hennis-Plasschaert has spoken to US defence secretary Chuck Hagel about the crash by phone, the Pentagon said in a statement.

The pair stressed ‘the difficulty investigators are experiencing in gaining unimpeded and secure access to the crash site,’ Pentagon spokesman John Kirby said.

In addition, Hennis-Plasschaert ‘highlighted the Netherlands' desire to have the victims returned to their families as soon as possible, balanced with the need to support and complete a credible investigation,’ Kirby said.

Sanctions

Meanwhile, Britain’s foreign secretary Philip Hammond has said the UK would seek to persuade the EU ‘to go further in terms of sanctions, against Russia, ahead of a meeting of foreign ministers on Tuesday, the BBC reported.

Ten British nationals were killed when the Boeing 777 was brought down.

British prime minister David Cameron said in the Sunday Times newspaper 'this is an outrage made in Moscow'.

Russia on Saturday called on Kiev and insurgents in eastern Ukraine to give experts access to the crash site of Malaysia airlines fight MH17 to facilitate their investigation.

"The Russian side appeals to both sides of the Ukrainian conflict, urging them to do everything possible to enable access for international experts to the airplane crash area in order to take action necessary for the investigation," the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

Also on Saturday, Russian president Vladimir Putin and German chancellor Angela Merkel agreed at a phone conversation that the MH17 crash in eastern Ukraine should be investigated by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) thoroughly and impartially.

The two leaders said bloodshed must be stopped immediately in eastern Ukraine, and that contact group talks involving representatives from conflict-hit regions should be resumed.

They also agreed that it "would be of fundamental importance" to implement Russia's initiative on the presence of Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) monitors at two checkpoints on the Russian-Ukrainian border.

Some 30 OSCE observers arrived at the crash site on Friday to help supervise the handling of the remains of victims of the fatal crash.

A Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 plane crashed Thursday in restive eastern Ukraine near the Russian border, killing all the 298 people on board.

The Ukrainian government and insurgents in the country's east have traded barbs, accusing each other of hindering the investigation and allowing bodies to rot.

Donetsk insurgent leader Aleksandr Borodai denied on Saturday that black boxes of the crashed Malaysian airliner had been found.

Borodai said they had not touched the site where the passenger plane crashed but they reserved the right to begin the process of taking away the bodies since the bodies would decompose in the heat.

"We ask the Russian Federation to help us with this problem and send their experts," Borodai, prime minister of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People's Republic, told a press conference.

Earlier in the day, Kiev accused insurgents of destroying evidence of international crimes from the wreckage of the Malaysian airliner.

"The terrorists have taken 38 bodies to the morgue in Donetsk," the Ukrainian government said in a statement.

Ukrainian prime minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk said insurgents in eastern Ukraine barred government experts from collecting evidence and threatened to detain them.

Malaysian prime minister Najib Razak said Malaysia should take possession of the black boxes from MH17.

Malaysian transport minister Liow Tiong Lai and foreign minister Anifah Anan left for Kiev on Saturday to help ensure that a team of Malaysian investigators is allowed access to the crash site.

Dutch prime minister Mark Rutte said his country, which lost 193 nationals in the crash, would not rest until the perpetrators of the possible attack on the crashed plane are detected, adding that his country have already sent its Safety Board to Ukraine to support an international investigation.

Meanwhile, Chinese president Xi Jinping and premier Li Keqiang have extended condolences to Malaysia and the Netherlands over the loss of lives in the tragedy.

In a message of condolences to Malaysian supreme head of state Abdul Halim Mu'adzam Shah, Xi said he was shocked after learning about the crash.

"On behalf of the Chinese government and people, I express deep sympathy to your country over the unfortunate event and convey profound condolences to all the deceased including those from your country on board," Xi said.

In another message, Xi told Dutch king Willem-Alexander he was shocked to learn about the crash which killed a large number of Dutch passengers.

"We empathize with the Dutch government and people over grief. I, myself, and on behalf of the Chinese government and people, express deep sympathy to you and convey profound condolences to the deceased from your country," said Xi.

The Boeing 777-200, en route from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur, went down Thursday in eastern Ukraine, killing all 298 people aboard, including 193 Dutch passengers.
