Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak today pledged that the government would do its best in the search and rescue (SAR) operation for the Malaysia Airlines (MAS) flight MH370, which was reported missing on Saturday.
"I assure you we are doing everything possible within our means.
"We thank you for your prayers, assistance and show of solidarity," Najib said in his Twitter account tonight.
Meanwhile, in his other tweet earlier, Najib said when Malaysia faced difficulties many countries came foward and offered assistance in the name of friendship.
"In our time of need, friendship has come in many forms. We will continue our efforts to search for MH370," the Prime Minister said.
Among the countries that offered assistance to Malaysia were China, Vietnam, the Philippines, Singapore, Indonesia, Australia as well as the United States of America.
The MAS MH370 flight, carrying 227 passengers and 12 crew, went missing en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing about an hour after taking off from the KL International Airport at 12.41am Saturday.
It should have landed in Beijing at 6.30am the same day.
