He said that as of now, his ministry has not received any new information or credible evidence allowing for search operations to continue.

“Efforts to find flight MH370 will never be neglected. Any further discussions to find MH370 will be coordinated with China and Australia,” he said.

“This will be done based on credible evidence that could lead to a new search for the missing plane,” added Loke in a parliamentary written reply to Chong Zhemin (PH-Kampar) on Thursday (June 15).

Chong had asked whether the government would continue its search for MH370 following a private company giving their commitment to continue the search without charging any fee if the flight was not discovered.

On the evening of March 8, 2014, the Malaysia Airlines aircraft with 239 people on board left the Kuala Lumpur International Airport for Beijing but vanished from radar screens about two hours after its departure.

Following that, massive search operations involving several countries were conducted in the southern Indian Ocean but neither the plane nor its wreckage was found.
