Hunt for MH370 will continue, says Najib

PUTRAJAYA: Malaysia will continue the search for Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 that has been missing since March 8, stressed Prime Mi­­nister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.

The country would carry on with the search with the assistance of other countries despite having no­­thing to show so far.

“The Government is determined to continue with the search with the cooperation of friendly countries, particularly Australia, which has shown extraordinary commitment to help Malaysia find our aircraft,” he said at the Prime Minister’s De­­part­­ment monthly assembly here yesterday.

Najib said the disappearance of the Boeing 777-200 aircraft was un­­precedented in the history of aviation as the aircraft’s telecommunications system had been shut off.

“The search as well as the assistan­ce and cooperation from other coun­­tries are unprecedented,” he said.

Flight MH370 went missing on March 8 with 227 passengers and 12 crew members on board flying from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.
