Australia To Help Secure Ukraine Crash Site
Updated: Wednesday, July 23 2014, 09:52 PM CDT
CANBERRA, Australia (AP) -- Australia's foreign minister says her country stands ready to provide whatever resources are needed to secure the Malaysian airliner's crash site in Ukraine, as newspapers report Australian troops and police could soon be sent.
Foreign Minister Julie Bishop said Thursday that she is traveling with her Dutch counterpart Frans Timmermans to meet with Ukraine leaders in Kyiv to discuss securing the crash site in rebel-held east Ukraine.
Sydney's The Daily Telegraph newspaper reports that the option likely to be presented to Australia would involve an Australian Federal Police-led task force protected by Australian troops, which would join a likely Dutch-led multinational security force.
A national newspaper, The Australian, reported that up to 100 Australian police and troops could be sent. The government did not immediately respond to the reports.
