MH 370: Australian PM backs Malay PM's conclusion on lost plane

Tony Abbott
Perth, April 1: As more evidences emerge in the Indian Ocean, the Australian PM said that the Malaysian government was right about the plane being lost as all the evidences proved that. On clearer terms, the Australian PM Tony Abbott said on Monday, supporting his Malaysian counterpart's view that the plane crashed.

On March 24, the Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak confirmed in public that the based on detailed analysis of satellite data, "the plane could be presumed lost at sea". This was an overwhelming piece of announcement, but the Australian PM supported it saying,"The accumulation of evidence is that the aircraft has been lost and it has been lost somewhere in the south of the Indian Ocean.That's the absolutely overwhelming wave of evidence and I think that Prime Minister Najib Razak was perfectly entitled to come to that conclusion, and I think once that conclusion had been arrived at, it was his duty to make that conclusion public."

Australia is a pajor participant in the search of MH 370, off the coast of Perth, engaging over 1000 sailors in ships and over 100 personnel searching from onboard the surveillance aircraft.

Refusing to put any time limit to the search operation, the PM said,"This is an extraordinarly difficult exercise. We are searching a vast area of ocean and we are working on quite limited information. Nevertheless, the best brains in the world are applying themselves to this task, all of the technological mastery that we have is being applied and brought to bear here. If this mystery is solvable, we will solve it. But I don't want to underestimate just how difficult it is.We can keep searching for quite some time to come. The intensity of our search and the magnitude of our search is increasing, not decreasing."

He further added,"We owe it to the families, we owe it to everyone that travels by air, we owe it to the governments of the countries who had citizens on that aircraft, we owe it to the wider world which has been transfixed by this mystery for three weeks now. We owe it to everyone to do everything we reasonably can."
