EARLIER today, the Malaysian Minister for Transport Anthony Loke released Malaysia’s investigation report into the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370.

The disappearance of MH370 is one of the great mysteries of our time and an unprecedented event.

The Australian Government appreciates that, having not located the missing aircraft, it is not possible to draw definitive conclusions about what happened to MH370.

As such, I am aware this report does not provide the answers the family and friends of the 239 people on board were seeking.

I have recently spoken with each of the families of the Australians on board and I acknowledge the sense of loss with which the family, friends and loved ones of the passengers on board MH370 live today and every day.
