Australian and Dutch government officials met with their Russian counterparts to hold discussions who claims the responsibility for the downing of Malaysian Airlines Flight 17 in 2014, Dutch foreign minister Stef Blok has said on Wednesday.

According to Reuters news reports, Malaysian Airlines Flight 17, en routed to Kuala Lumpur from Amsterdam, was shot down over a territory held by the pro-Russian separatists in the eastern region of Ukraine, which has claimed the lives of about 298 people on board, where two-thirds were Dutch nationals.
