Minister of Foreign Affairs Frans Timmermans and his Australian counterpart Julie Bishop are set to travel to Ukraine on Thursday. There they will inform the Ukrainian authorities of the work they are undertaking as part of international efforts by the EU and UN.

During their visit the ministers will assess the repatriation of the victims and the progress being made in investigating the disaster involving flight MH17.

The Netherlands and Australia are working closely together on implementing the UN Security Council resolution that was adopted unanimously in New York last Monday.
