According to the BBC, 

Mr Rutte said that the commemoration would provide "a chance for the Netherlands to show the next-of-kin that they are not standing alone".

However, the BBC's Anna Holligan in the Netherlands says that Mr Rutte still cannot answer the most pressing questions asked by bereaved families - who was responsible for shooting down the plane and when will all of the remains of the victims be repatriated?

Such was the impact of the MH17 crash in the Netherlands that 17 July 2014 is often referred to as the country's 9/11.
