(Flight MH370) Malaysia says media speculation ‘irresponsible’
(04-02 19:22)

Malaysia’s Defense Minister Hishammuddin Hussein said in Hawaii that his interactions had revealed that no one was accusing Malaysia of making missteps in handling the MH370 issue, with many of his interlocutors taking a swipe at certain media outlets for irresponsible reporting.
He added that speculation was an unwelcome distraction as it had led to resources being wasted, state news agency Bernama reported.
He said families too had been put on a roller-coaster ride with each bit of speculation with regard to the missing plane, just because some media organizations were bent on boosting their ratings on the back of the MH370 coverage.
“That's unfair, that's irresponsible. Hence, the importance of releasing only verified information, which has been the case with the government of Malaysia," Hishammuddin added.
He is in Honolulu for the United States-Asean Defence Forum convened by US Defence Secretary Chuck Hagel.
