Malaysia's Minister of Transport Liow Tiong Lai told reporters here yesterday that he had received information from his colleagues in Malaysia about the wreckage that has been spotted in the French island of La Reunion.
The Boeing 777-200 plane of Malaysia Airlines went missing on March 8, 2014, an hour after taking off from Kuala Lumpur for Beijing with 239 people on board, including five Indians and one Indian-Canadian.
"I have sent a team to verify the wreckage. Anyway we need to verify," he said following a Security Council meeting on another Malaysia Airlines flight MH17, which crashed in July 2014 in Donetsk , Ukraine. "Whatever wreckage found needs to be further verified before we can further confirm whether it belongs to MH370," he said.
"So we have dispatched a team to investigate on this issues and we hope that we can identify it as soon as possible," he added. The mysterious piece of plane debris washed up on the French Indian Ocean island of La Reunion, prompting speculation that it could be part of the missing Malaysia Airlines flight.
