Malaysia’s deputy transport minister Aziz Kaprawi said on Thursday that negotiations are ongoing. It is known that Ocean Infinity will focus on searching the seafloor in an area that has previously been identified by experts as the next most likely location to find MH370. A search co-ordinated by Australia, China and Malaysia, which cost AUS$200m (£119m), was halted in January without relevant results. No sign of the plane was found in the 46,000 square mile (120,000sq km) search zone west of Australia. It seems however the search was not in the appropriate area. What happened to MH370 still remain a mystery.
