(Flight MH370) Beijing demands Malaysia continue search and rescue, seeks detailed evidence
(03-25 09:09)

China has demanded that Malaysia hand over the satellite data that led to its judgment yesterday that the missing Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 “ended’’ its flight in the southern Indian Ocean and that none had survived.
Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak told relatives Monday that the flight “ended in the southern Indian Ocean'' after new analysis of satellite data on the plane’s path placed its last position in remote waters off Australia's west coast.
In a meeting late yesterday, Deputy Foreign Minister Xie Hangsheng asked Malaysia's Ambassador to China, Iskandar Bin Sarudin, to provide the “detailed evidence'' that led to the conclusion, China's Ministry of Foreign Affairs said.
“We demand the Malaysian side to state the detailed evidence that leads them to this judgment as well as supply all the relevant information and evidence about the satellite data analysis,'' Xie said, according to a statement on the ministry's website.
“The search and rescue work cannot stop now, we demand the Malaysian side to continue to finish all the work including search and rescue,'' Xie said.
