3. SOUNDBITE (English) Frans Timmermans, Netherland's foreign minister:
"I know that you will do everything you can to make that (independent investigation) possible. And rest assured that we from our side will do everything we can to assist you. And frankly I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart to do us the honour of asking us to lead the investigation."
"The international community is outraged that this crash could occur in the circumstances that it did and that it was not treated as an airline crash site nor as a crime site and so the degradation of the site, the contamination of the evidence and the disrespect shown to the bodies was too much for the citizens of our country to bear."
"The respective aviation authorities of Ukraine and the Netherlands have signed the respective agreement (about cooperating in the investigation) a couple of hours ago. And our key priority at the moment, our absolute priority, our common priority is to ensure the full access to the crash site, is to ensure the transparent and effective investigation and of course to recover all the possible remnants at the crash site."

Australian and Dutch diplomats joined forces to promote a plan for a UN team to secure the crash scene of Malaysia Airlines flight 17, which has been controlled by pro-Russian seperatists.
Australia's foreign minister Julie Bishop and her Dutch counterpart Frans Timmermans met with Ukraine's foreign minister Pavlo Klimkin in Kiev on Thursday.
Addressing the media after the meeting Klimkin said an agreement had been reached, and now the top priority was to ensure "full access to the crash site... the transparent and effective investigation, and of course to recover all the possible remnants."
All 298 people aboard Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 - most of them Dutch citizens - were killed when the plane was downed on July 17.
US officials say the Boeing 777 was probably shot down by a missile, most likely by accident.
