Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak (pic) has criticised a statement by an opposition leader who claimed he could solve the mystery of the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 in one second.

He said the disappearance of Flight MH370 had entered its 39th day and needed the support of countries within and outside the region due to the complexity of the search and its unprecedented challenges.

"The remark of the opposition leader is illogical and regarded the people of Malaysia as stupid," he said at the monthly meeting of the Finance Ministry here on Tuesday.

On April 5, a Chinese newspaper published an interview by the Southern Weekly magazine with Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim which quoted him as saying that if he were the prime minister, he would take one second to solve the issue of the missing MH370.

The jet with 239 people took off on March 8 from the KL International Airport at 12.41am and went off the radar screens an hour later while flying over the South China Sea. The aircraft should have landed in Beijing, China at 6.30am on the same day.
