Malaysia PM ‘hopeful’ about MH370 will be found
Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak says he is hopeful that Malaysia Airlines flight MH370, which has been missing for two years, will be found.

On Tuesday, Najib said the country “remains hopeful” that the plane would be found as the search for the aircraft continues following the second anniversary of its disappearance.

He said that the discovery of a wing part last July in France’s Reunion Island was evidence supporting the idea that the ill-fated plane crashed into the southern Indian Ocean.

He added that if the search, which is expected to be completed later this year, ended with no results, Malaysia, Australia, and China would hold a meeting to work on a solution.

“We remain committed to doing everything within our means to solving what is an agonizing mystery for the loved ones of those who were lost,” Najib said in a statement.

Meanwhile, the international team looking into the case said on Tuesday that it is working to finalize its “analysis, findings, conclusions, and safety recommendations on eight relevant areas associated with the disappearance.”

On Monday, families of MH370 victims gathered outside a court in the Chinese capital, Beijing, to file lawsuits before a two-year deadline to take legal action against the airline.
