The government will work towards bringing home the wreckage of Malaysian Airlines MH17 after the full investigation by the Dutch authorities.

Transport Minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai said discussions are ongoing to allow the investigating team to bring back wreckage to Holland for investigation.

“Yes, we are still negotiating with Ukraine and the separatists to allow investigators to move in even in winter,” he said to reporters after launching the Road Safety Council’s 55th annual general meeting today.

He said what was important now is to focus on the investigation of the crash and added that the government will then decide to bring back the wreckage to be kept as a memorial of the crash which claimed the lives of 44 Malaysians.

MH17 aircraft, carrying 283 passengers and 15 crew members, crashed in eastern Ukraine on July 17 after it was believed to have been shot down during its flight from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur.

Yesterday, Defence Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein said three remaining victims of MH17 have been identified, including that of his step-grandmother, Puan Sri Siti Amirah Kusuma.

Siti Amirah, 83, was also the step-grandmother of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, Hishammuddin's cousin.
