India's airforce is on standby to join the search for the Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 that disappeared five days ago, a spokesman says.
Indian Air Force spokesman Gerard Galway told AFP: “We have not received any task [as of now] but in case there is a requirement, our aircraft will be deployed to assist in the search operations.’’
President Pranab Mukherjee said India is ready to offer any assistance.
A foreign ministry spokesman said Malaysia had accepted India's offer of assistance. Details are being worked out.
Mukherjee's office said the president had spoken with Malaysia's king.
