MH17 - Message from H.E. Mr. François Hollande, President of the Republic of France.
It is with deep emotion that I learnt of a Malaysia Airlines passenger plane crash, in Ukraine, connecting from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur.
France requests that everything is implemented, to shed light on the circumstances that caused this tragedy.
I express my solidarity with the relatives of the passengers on the hardship they are going through.
The French authorities, including the Crisis Centre of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Development, have mobilized to collect all the information about what happened and the nationalities of the passengers.
The Government has recommended that national airlines avoid flying over Ukraine.
