Kuala Lumpur - Malaysia is seeking help from more countries to locate a passenger plane that went missing more than a week ago, the Transport Ministry said Sunday.
"Malaysian officials are contacting countries along the northern and southern corridors about MH370," it said.
"These countries include: Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Turkmenistan, Pakistan, Bangladesh, India, China, Myanmar, Laos, Vietnam, Thailand, Indonesia, Australia and France," the statement said.
"Officials are requesting assistance from these countries."
On Saturday, Prime Minister Najib Razak announced the termination of the search in the South China Sea, after investigators determined the Beijing-bound flight MH370 had changed course and headed westward before its communication system was disabled.
