KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama) -- The United Nations (UN) Security Council has been urged to issue a resolution to get a free, open and safe access to the Malaysia Airlines (MAS) flight MH17 crash site in Donetsk, eastern Ukraine.

Geostrategist Prof Dr Azmi Hassan said the Council, during its recent emergency meeting, had only issued a vague and unspecified statement concerning the incident.

"The statement, among others, call for an international investigation team to be set up, but it did not emphasize the importance for Russia to control the pro-Russian rebels who control the area.
