This has been a very difficult period for the families and loved ones of the victims and my thoughts and prayers are with them.

Saddened to read on the news that the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 has ended in a remote part of the southern Indian Ocean.

Deeply saddened to hear about the tragic fate of MH370. For more than two weeks, we have been hoping against hope that somehow the worst did not happen.

We know how anguished and desperate the families and friends of those on board felt.

While we are still far from understanding what happened, I hope this latest news will nonetheless give some certainty and closure. My deepest sympathies and condolences to the families and friends of those on board, and to the governments of Malaysia and China. - LHL
