MH370 : Malaysia wants to intensify search for missing plane

Malaysian Transport Minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai has said that in view of the latest findings by the French, the search operations for the missing MH370 Boeing should be intensified.

KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia will intensify its search operations for the missing Malaysia Airlines MH370. This decision follows the confirmation by French authorities that the wing part flaperon found on the French La Reunion island is of the missing plane.

Malaysian Transport Minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai said that the latest findings were confirmative and the three countries involved in the search, Malaysia, China and Australia, should intensify the search.

"The latest news, where the French authorities in Toulouse have further verified the piece of evidence found, definitely confirms the need to continue the search in the interests of all at hand...We are very grateful to France for its initiative and effort in determining the authenticity of the debris found. They have done a good job to further analyse and assist in the search for the missing aircraft in the Indian Ocean...Likewise, the strategic working group of Malaysia, China and Australia will get into action to intensify the search with the hope of finding more evidence as to the cause of the likely crash and eventually find the missing jetliner, altogether," he said at the Terengganu MCA, its Youth and Wanita convention at the Tanjung Vista Hotel in Jalan Sultan Zainal Abidin, accordig to New Straits Times.

"We have to take into account the very difficult times the next-of-kin of the missing passengers and crew are enduring. We, the people and government of Malaysia, are with them always and hope to bring to an end this prolonged agony," he said.

The French had started investigations of the debris last month. MH370 had disappeared en route to Beijing from Kuala Lumpur with 239 onboard in March last year.
