Roughly translated by use of Google Translate:King asks attention for MH17 and sexual minority rights at UN
King Willem-Alexander, in his speech at the General Assembly of the United Nations, called on Russia to participate in the MH17 investigation. "The relatives of the 298 victims expect justice and we will not rest until justice is done."
The king stated that it is unacceptable that "those responsible for international crimes avoid justice." He says that the Netherlands remains committed to strengthening the International Criminal Court because it is an indispensable part of the international legal order.
Willem-Alexander also paid attention to the rights of sexual minorities in his speech. "The Kingdom of the Netherlands is pleased that the equal rights of gays, lesbians, transgender people and other minority groups are being laid down in the law in more and more places in the world. We hope that this development will continue, but in the end it is the practice that counts."
The king also mentioned climate change. According to him, international cooperation has never been so urgent for the future of the planet. "Greenhouse gases know no boundaries. Only together can we cope with climate change. We are happy to heed the call to take responsibility and show ambition."
The king stated that support for the UN is under pressure, while close cooperation between states is of great importance for "everyone's freedom, security and prosperity". "The fight against poverty and inequality is best served by joining forces across borders. We need each other more than ever."
