(03-26 14:25)

Special envoy Zhang Yesui met with Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak in Kuala Lumpur today for discussions on the missing Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777.
Zhang, a vice foreign minister, is also expected to meet with Malaysia's acting Transport Minister, Hishammuddin Hussein, as well as executives of the state-owned airline.

The senior Chinese diplomat went to Kula Lumpur after President Xi Jinping ordered in The Hague on Monday that a special envoy be sent to consult with Malaysian authorities, learn about the situation, and ask Malaysia to properly handle related issues.
Also today, three Chinese warships and an icebreaker reached their target areas in the southern Indian Ocean to search for the ill-fated Boeing 777, which disappeared early March 8 while carrying 239 people – including 154 Chinese – from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.—Xinhua
