XI'AN - Families of Chinese passengers of the ill-fated Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 are hoping for a chance to meet Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak during the latter's official visit to China until June 1.

On their official Weibo account, the family representatives committee wrote on Monday: "Lately we have been making requests to see Najib via telephone calls, emails and letters to Malaysia Airlines, representatives of the Malaysian and Chinese governments.

"Haven't our requests been forwarded to the top?" the post read, in reference to a reported response from the Chinese Foreign Ministry that it was not aware of such a request.

MH370, which disappeared from radar en route to Beijing on March 8, carried mostly Chinese nationals.

After putting up at several hotels in Beijing for two months, some 400 family members returned to their homes following the closure of the family assistance centres early this month.
