"The United States will fully support all efforts to bring to justice those responsible. Our assessment is unchanged - MH17 was shot down by a surface-to-air missile fired from separatist-controlled territory in eastern Ukraine. The victims and their loved ones remain in our thoughts and prayers," National Security Council spokesman Ned Price said in a statement.

Earlier on Tuesday, Dutch investigators said the aircraft was shot down over Ukraine by a Russian-built Buk missile.
