"The objective of that trip today was to prove (try) that road. It was a road we have never taken before to reach the site. It proved to be doable, even though with some obstacles. But we learned a lot in terms of who is where and who has the say, which are the important commanders, what we need to be alert to, especially back in rebel-held territory. So we will over the night now reach these conclusions, go into new negotiations and then try to do the same way tomorrow, on the same route in order then to be able to access that site again."

"Therefore it is of course high risk to be there without us there and you also would have to understand that the rebels that were on the site today were very nervous, very nervous. And that is in itself a high risk because then the trigger is very close to the finger. And that in itself is cause for concern."

"We had a quick inspection of the site. Today it was more about an assessment of the site than it was a search. We're fortunate to have both the Dutch and the Australian forensic experts with us. Commander Mike Harrison from the Australian federal police spent good time on the site and has been able to make an assessment about what is going to be the best way we can take the search and recovery aspects of that forward over the next few days and a week."
11. Pieter-Jaap Aalbersberg, head of Dutch-led international team investigating the disaster, arriving at news conference
12. SOUNDBITE (English) Pieter-Jaap Aalbersberg, head of Dutch-led international team investigating the disaster:
"I cannot confirm that at the moment, there are still 80 remains on the crash site. Our experts today only have been an hour on one site, they just have cordoned the area to start more tomorrow the search. And today, they haven't seen any remains but tomorrow we will exercise the search on these special areas when we get entry and then we're going to try to first search for human remains and personal belongings."
Two weeks after a missile brought down Malaysia Airlines Flight 17, an international team of investigators on Thursday reached the wreckage site in eastern Ukraine and got their first look at a scene experts fear has been badly compromised since the plane was blown out of the sky.
As the investigators - two each from the Netherlands and Australia - made an initial survey of the area shortly after lunchtime, fighting raged between government forces and pro-Russian separatist rebels, and mortar shells rained down on fields in a nearby village.
Despite the dangers, upon returning to the rebel-held city of Donetsk, the team called the one-hour inspection a success.
Alexander Hug, deputy head of the OSCE (Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe) mission to Ukraine said they had gathered vital information regarding the security situation on the ground, which would allow them to return and start work in earnest.
He said the biggest risk was that rebels in the area were "very nervous."
"Today was more about an assessment of the site than it was a search," said Australian Federal Police commander Brian McDonald, who is working with the OSCE team.
Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop, speaking to the Australian Broadcasting Corporation from Ukraine, said up to 80 bodies were still at the site.
But Pieter-Jaap Aalbersberg, head of the Dutch-led international team investigating the disaster, said at a news conference in Kiev that he could not "confirm that at the moment, that there are still 80 remains on the crash site."
He said experts on Thursday had not seen any bodies but would begin searching for human remains and belongings on Friday.
