SEPANG: The preliminary report on the disappearance of Flight MH370 is expected to be made public today.
Acting Transport Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein said he would reveal the contents of the report tabled to the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) by the Department of Civil Aviation.
“I don’t think it’s an issue for us to make (the report) public. This is the way forward,” he told reporters at the opening of the ERL (express railway link) station at KLIA2 here yesterday.
Flight MH370 disappeared with 239 passengers on board on March 8 after diverting from its path to Beijing from Kuala Lumpur.
A multinational search for the missing aircraft has been launched since, with the area of search now focused on the southern Indian Ocean.
Hishammuddin said the next phase of action for the MH370 search and rescue mission was to be discussed in Australia next week.
He said he would travel to Australia to discuss cost-sharing matters related to the search for the missing plane.
“As we go into deep sea search, it is important that the cost be discussed with all stakeholders.
“When we have consensus and agreement, probably by next week, we will announce the cost-sharing.
“But we won’t know what the cost will be until we have ascertained where we will be searching, what assets will used and who is going to supply (the assets),” Hishammuddin said.
