PETALING JAYA: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak is expected to hold a press conference Monday, 10pm, at the Putra World Trade Centre (PWTC) to reveal new developments on the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370.
Acting Transport Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein informed lawmakers in Parliament that Najib was scheduled to arrive at the PWTC at 9pm, before giving a statement to the press.
Hishammudin, who appeared before lawmakers in the Dewan for the first time since the plane went missing on March 8, did not reveal details of the scheduled press conference.
"There is some development. Whatever it is, the focus is to reduce the search area, so anything that PM announces is in relation to the reduction," he said.
Earlier, Hishammuddin reiterated that the Government is adhering to international operating procedures with regards to the search, which is being conducted in a transparent manner.
Flight MH370, a Boeing 777, disappeared from Malaysian radars at 2.15am on March 8 after taking off from Kuala Lumpur International Airport for Beijing at 1.30am. It carried 239 passengers and crew.
Investigations have revealed that MH370 diverted from its flight path and most probably flew along two corridors - one to the North headed to Eastern Europe and another Southbound to the Indian Ocean.
Various satellite images as well as visual sightings of suspected debris of the plane has been reported over the past few days.
The search for the missing aircraft is now into its 17th day.
