History will judge us well, says Hisham

Acting transport minister Hishammuddin Hussein believes that Malaysia has done exceptionally well in coordinating the search and rescue operation for Malaysian Airlines Flight MH370.

Responding to a question during his daily briefing, he said: "Not all countries can get 26 other countries to come and help."

The minister said these countries had set aside differences to come together in this effort to locate the Beijing-bound Boeing 777 with 239 people on board.

"There was no concern over issues like skin colour and religion," he said. "It is a great achievement... History will judge us well."

He added that nations in the regions have been fighting over "rocks in the ocean" but have been able to put behind squabbles aside in the search for MH370.

'Time will heal wounds'

On another matter, Hishammuddin said the Malaysian authorities have complied with China’s request to hand over all information and satellite data.

The request was made after Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak announced on Monday night that the plane had crashed in the southern part of the Indian ocean and all those on MH370 had perished.

Quizzed on the anger and protest in Beijing, Hishammuddin said the Chinese families must understand that Malaysians and other nationals had also lost their loved ones.

The minister added that time would heal the raging emotions.

"I have seen footage from Australia, where there is acceptance and nobody is blaming the Malaysian government," he added.

Relatives of passengers in Beijing had among others accused the Malaysian government of being "murderers" and concealing information.
