MH370: Hisham to discuss next phase of search with Australian authorities next week

SEPANG - Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein will travel to Australia sometime next week to discuss the next phase in the search for missing Malaysia Airlines (MAS) flight MH370.

Hishammuddin, who is also Acting Transport Minister, said he would also discuss cost sharing matters related to the search and rescue (SAR) operation.

"As we go into deep-sea search, it is important that cost be discussed with all the stakeholders," Hishammuddin said.

He said that an announcement with regard cost sharing would be made once an agreement was arrived at.

"However, we won't know what the cost will be because we don't know what assets will be used and who is going to supply it, and that is being done by the three committees that have been formed," Hishammuddin said in a press conference after opening the ERL (express railway link) station at KLIA2, here, Wednesday.

He added that he would reveal the preliminary report of the MH370 tragedy in a press conference on Thursday.
