“We owe it to the grieving families to ... give them comfort and closure to this rather tragic event and the world expects us to do our level best,'' Najib said as he toured the search base in Perth.
“We want to find answers. We want to provide comfort to the families and we will not rest until answers are indeed found.''
Najib said the search was probably the largest mission to locate an aircraft ever staged and he was confident it would provide answers.
“I am very confident with the level of professionalism... that indeed in due time we will provide a closure to this event, on this tragedy,'' he said as he thanked those involved in “this gargantuan task.’’
“I know it is a daunting task in very inclement weather, in very challenging circumstances and Malaysia is indeed grateful for your courage and your commitment.''

Officials insists they did not say it crashed.
Kuala Lumpur's handling of the crisis has been widely criticized, especially by relatives of the 153 Chinese nationals aboard.
