KUALA LUMPUR: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak has postponed his official visit to Mauritius in view of the missing Malaysia Airlines (MAS) aircraft incident, according to a government spokesman.
The visit had been scheduled for March 11 to 13.
"Search and rescue operations for MH370 are the government's utmost priority at this difficult time," the spokesman said in a statement.
MAS Flight MH370, carrying 227 passengers and 12 crew, went missing en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing about an hour after taking off from the KL International Airport at 12.41 am on Saturday.
More than 60 hours after the disappearance of the Boeing 777-200ER aircraft over the South China Sea, a multinational search-and-rescue team has found no trace of the missing plane.
