WASHINGTON — The United States says it’s preparing to present data from the U.S. intelligence community laying out what’s known about the Malaysia Airlines plane that was shot down in Ukraine.
White House spokesman Josh Earnest says the intelligence community will have some additional data to present today. No additional details about what would be released were available.
Earnest said the U.S. welcomes the news that most of the remains of the 298 killed have been handed over to authorities and the black boxes were transferred to Dutch and Malaysian authorities.
But he says the U.S. still hasn’t seen the level of cooperation from Russia and pro-Russian separatists that it wants to see. Earnest says international investigators led by the Dutch still need full and immediate access to the crash site.
