Kuala Lumpur, May 25 (IANS) Malaysia said on Friday that it was determined to "prosecute those responsible" for the downing of the Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 over Ukraine and has "resolved to seek justice for the victims".
The Foreign Ministry said in a statement that it would study the joint investigation team's findings and reiterated the team's call for information from insiders and witnesses, Efe news reported.
The statement comes a day after a Dutch-led international team of investigators said it was "convinced" that the BUK missile system used to shoot down the plane came from the 53rd Anti Aircraft Missile Brigade, a unit of the Russian army from Kursk, near the Ukrainian border.
The Boeing 777 crash on July 17, 2014 killed all 298 people on board when it was shot down flying from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur.
