“It goes without saying that I entirely agree with what the Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman says about the Dutch foreign minister’s ridiculous statements. The Dutch government has lost all credibility over its obstinate handling of the MH17 affair to reach pre-conceived and illogical conclusions. They have lost any authority they may have had to offer any sort of opinion of the recent Iran plane disaster.
I have to also say that I am very pleased that Iran is showing true backbone in its determination that the investigation will fully take place on Iranian territory, including the decoding of the damaged black boxes. No Western nation is trustworthy enough to be allowed to carry out that process independently. The MH17 fiasco has made that entirely clear.
