The Malaysian Ministry of Transport has denied agreeing to a new search mission for the missing wreckage of Malaysian Airlines Flight MH370. There have been two official search missions to find the airplane, missing since 2014. The latest effort, carried out by a private company, ended in 2018.

The Malaysian Ministry of Transport states has not made any decision to relaunch a new search mission for the wreckage of Malaysian Airlines Boeing 777. In a written statement, dated February 10, 2020, the authority refuted claims allegedly made by news report that states otherwise.

“While the Ministry of Transport deeply empathizes with the family members of the victims and stands by them, the Ministry has not made any decision to relaunch any new searches as there has not been any new credible evidence to initiate such a process,” the statement reads.

The Malaysian authority also states it would review any new evidence if it officially received it. However, the decision to re-launch the search for MH370 would require consultation with China and Australia.
