MANILA, March 27 — Malaysian Prime Minister Dato’ Sri Mohd Najib Bin Tun Abdul Razak on Thursday thanked the Philippines for its assistance in the ongoing search efforts for the missing Malaysia Airlines MH370 carrying 239 people.

Prime Minister Najib was invited by President Benigno S. Aquino III to witness the signing of the Comprehensive Agreement on the Bangsamoro held at the Malacanang grounds.

Malaysia has been the facilitator of peace negotiations between the Philippine government and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front since 2001.

Prime Minister Najib said Malaysia is grateful for the support of its neighboring countries, including the Philippines, in the search for the missing Flight MH370.

“Our belief in cooperation across borders has been strengthened by tragedy,” the Malaysian premier said in his speech during the signing ceremony of the Comprehensive Agreement on the Bangsamoro on Thursday.

“The loss of 239 people on board Flight MH370 has been devastating. Malaysia is grateful for the support of our friends and neighbors, including the Philippines, in the continuing search effort. At this difficult time, we draw strength from the compassionate response of our fellow nations,” he added.

The Prime Minister had earlier confirmed that the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370, carrying 227 passengers and 12 crew, “ended in the southern Indian Ocean.”
