KUALA LUMPUR -- Malaysian Transport Minister Liow Tiong-tai said Thursday that more ships may join the search for the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 in the South Indian Ocean.
The transport minister told local reporters that the government is currently in discussions with China on the matter, hoping that such a move would become a reality.
"We will add more vessels with China's cooperation and hope to increase the number of vessels searching for MH370," he said.
Right now there are four vessels in the South Indian Ocean and they are currently searching the ocean floor for a sign of the plane.
Malaysia has officially declared the incident as an accident and all 239 people on board the flight presumed dead as months of underwater searches have not found anything relating to their aircraft.
