‘We’ll do everything to keep families informed on latest events’


SEPANG: Acting Transport Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein has pledged that Malaysian authorities would do everything in their power to keep families of those on board missing Malaysia Airlines (MAS) MH370 informed on the latest events.

“I know this rollercoaster has been incredibly hard for everyone, especially for the families.

“We hope and pray this difficult search will be resolved, and bring closure to those whose relatives were on board,” he told a media briefing here on the latest development pertaining to the search for the missing aircraft.

Speaking on the 15th day of the search and rescue (SAR) operation, Hishammuddin, who is also Defence Ministesr, noted that the briefing for families in Kuala Lumpur went well yesterday, while the one in Beijing, China was less productive.

“Despite the best of intentions, I understand there were tense scenes. I have received a report from the Malaysian high-level team, as well as a copy of the declaration from the Chinese families.

“I have asked the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, together with the authorities in China, to investigate what happened,” said Hishammuddin. — Bernama
