BEIJING, July 19 (Reuters) - China's President Xi Jinping called for a fair and objective investigation into the downing of a Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 with 298 aboard, China's official government website said on Saturday.

The investigation should find out the truth as soon as possible, the website reported Xi as saying.
