Malaysian PM in Perth as Australia says search will go on

PERTH, Australia - Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak toured the military base being used as a staging post in the hunt for Flight MH370 Thursday as Australia said are no imminent plans to abandon the search.

Retired Australian air chief marshal Angus Houston, who is heading a new coordination centre in Perth, told Najib "Australia is doing everything it can" to track down the missing jet while praising the "remarkable" international cooperation in the quest for answers.

"It is a truly international effort and the search, I think, is a powerful example of international cooperation at its very best," Houston said, describing Malaysia and Australia as "good mates".
