|Vice Foreign Minister Xie Hangsheng Makes an Appointment to Meet with Malaysian Ambassador to China Datuk Iskandar Sarudin|
On March 14, 2014, Vice Foreign Minister Xie Hangsheng made an appointment to meet with Malaysian Ambassador to China Datuk Iskandar Sarudin.
Xie said that all sides, including China and Malaysia, are sparing no efforts to carry out the search and rescue work, but the whereabouts of the flight are still unknown. The families of the passengers are burning with anxiety. We urge the Malaysian side to step up coordination on search and rescue efforts, promptly clarify various claims, especially carefully verify the news of possible turning back of the flight, and provide China with relevant information and data to effectively facilitate the search and rescue work.
Datuk Iskandar Sarudin said that the Malaysian side is going all out to commit itself to the search and rescue work with a highly responsible attitude, and has already released the latest development in time and will continue to do so. Malaysia will properly pacify families of the passengers on board.
