A good afternoon ladies and it's not much -- to introduce. And that that it -- the minister for defense and the busted for defense force and Marshall -- its content to make some comments are regarding. A -- southern Indian Ocean and also the these Chinese national efforts. 28. Hopefully fund. Something. Something that regarding -- until recently. As gentlemen thank you wolf for a fifth keeping everybody in form. As to what is going on with what is most important. As being in terms of the idea nation. And maritime. Citing. It took to dial I'm here to speak to the crews. And the -- China's of these magnificent -- crafted behind me. I want -- tight the opportunity to publicly thank. All of the cruise. And all of the teams that hate these kinds flying as you know it is -- four action began in two has on stylish and and then four at a time. This is an extremely -- my pile of the world. He needs that united street and a 3500. Made his day. 2500. Kilometers from. It's a massive logistical exercise their four Australian plates race. Two Japanese pay through -- why New Zealand -- -- -- pay hike from the his -- to solutions from China. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Now -- -- the opportunity to thank all of those countries for their assistance and the commitment I've just had lunch with the Chinese and Japanese things. They're rule you know working exotic -- asked to keep their aircraft flying. To keep their crews out to the minute in terms of enthusiasm. It's been a long hard ride to week's scene. You know we've got to say -- it's given them an -- Jim I -- successes -- to deploy a 120 kilometers to the steps to avoid. For those of you understand -- -- horrendous with the conditions. This is in my -- horizon. -- side that the prime minister has to die announced that these -- these will be wise for the families of the passengers and crew of this allies in their craft. We will be very pleased to welcome them he'd give them some closure and what is an an extreme tragedy for the -- that I come back to the fact that this is an amazing example of international cooperation particularly between militants. And mass size of -- mr. -- we're very pleased to -- the Chinese the Japanese the Koreans the New Zealanders and the Americans into Western Australia. This is a special facility being offered for the families to come here into the -- The -- another vote what I can -- see through the crash area. Well -- -- I think those logistical operations will need to be considered very carefully I don't -- speculate because if he's in my major operation this is as our site. Probably one of the much -- console that planets. We wanna get that drives we want to assist these families and friends. To have some closure. But that's talk about that when we know him and you coming in when their. Is -- now residue recovery operation after the -- announcement last nights it very clearly now. The case of not through the looking for survivors but looking forward to agree and looking for those like -- this well let's let's be clear. To this point in time we have not successfully identified. And recovered any degree from the aircraft in question. He can throw it the -- that would bring a different view that there. If you line wasn't do you hear. Well I think if we -- going to be alone does turning from my -- giving us a hint as to what is actually happened that's -- we've got to go. I think the telemetry from the satellite. The U Masset satellite. Generating on -- -- system telemetry from as mothers. And the performance of the -- I think he's always got to go on. I I think we've got to rely on that men and that's what we've been doing 300 -- -- hey I have an idea I think it would like to us. -- There. I am confident that because that's the biggest we've got to this point in time. They are trying to go to an analysis and so on statements surprises and I home last night. The name of -- look look I'm not surprised today anything with respect to this this is a mystery. And until we recover out. And positively identify a piece of debris. Everything is visually speculation. With a look at. Point yesterday what's the situation with -- -- well well when you've got to suspend operations for 24 has because although the way that -- beautifully craft on mineral on the Graham as you can see. Because it's on site to fly down there now remain. This part of the world this southern operation. Has she -- many many Silas in our history in west is trying to. He's a rough -- -- seven united the era twenty city made a wives it is very very -- even for big Panamax class ships. To try to -- your protocol vetoes and go through sifting through the details. Remind us it can -- applaud conclusions can group them by massive and. Look up all the hand out and admitted to two that vice chief of defense been -- who will -- view that everything that we have you know that. And that we are doing everything we can -- system rule -- a positive identification on a piece of debris that will remain. That we're on the right track now that's not gonna happen I wouldn't think for at least another 24 -- because we've had to redeploy as -- Given the bed with a. Do you think I had anything from the monitoring and done and that the blood on images and the photos that the Chinese provides. I have nothing further to add on that I think you've seen all of the information that is that is that -- It sends them and we were. Marlins tonight remains diamonds noise all the while. Well I probably wasn't cause I was probably travelling somewhere and and you know on the -- back to -- and -- stride yet. The prime minister I'm sure has been informed. -- analyzed and as in wind events have come to pots and I've been concerned. Do you understand I tonight success to be confident that they close to what was saying from the -- today. Well the it's very easy to speculate that being close close in this part of the world could be several hundred kilometers. Just remember we are looking for any craft in Victoria from -- -- mr. And that's what we're doing if you wanna put it in some sort of analogous. Description we are looking for an aircraft in the state of Victoria from west mr. he's a very very difficult task and can I tell you this deployment that you can see behind me and all of the aircraft that -- nine. He's probably one of the largest if that's you'll ever see in terms of merit -- violence. And joint operations from China the strategy paying New Zealand the United States Korea its -- How -- is the task given that. Is that thing guys lift for that -- that -- to tell us where the black box slot record as a full obviously everything's fairly agent but you know we cannot. Put Potts in cruise at risk we -- put. Ship's company at risk we just have to deal with this location as best we can in terms of its way there and it's inhospitable kind of in America corporate -- He's. You know because optic phone but it hasn't. Played well. As a -- the turning point for us I think will be when we pull some piece of debris from the surface of the ocean and positive identified as being part of the crowd. Yeah apparently count on the support their current. Will be providing for them is that that at this -- -- doctors that this stud dog died but you know beer in mind the prime minister is very very. Fixed on assisting -- -- it was a very good friend of a -- In dealing with the families of the crew and the passengers on board to -- -- we'll do what we can within minutes you don't have Chinese finally -- helping. And in depth on it and Diana. Two vice chief of defense teams can do as you can see is with the rule this planet fullest he's gonna tell you that some of us. So if I -- I took the analogy of what would go to there at the moment -- not searching for middle and high -- was still -- to -- with a high -- he's so that that that's just to put it in in context. Com you sing a multi national effort. Going on it is difficult for hedge my success to in the these weather conditions -- able to. Fall on small bits of debris. That is so Washington ran in the with the southern Indian Ocean at the Monmouth. As a minister said for safety concerns that I. We had to fully BS itself that the surge and put success to the -- what I'd be for good weather in the the coming diaries. Where the search of the will be joined by a number of -- ships. Will have victory MP3. On -- -- -- croft but more ships in the variable stopped -- -- -- -- on the. The socialist tickets it's becoming more recovery operation in it was before. There and you were the strain assets including the ocean shield. I understand hitting out there what's its role hasn't helped. What can do Taj and two will be joining the episode action that the coming dies she's selling from -- -- would appreciate it takes. On to to come down and around into the search area. The -- move will be working to put specialist equipment on board so that as we further refine. The search area that we marked double to to go ahead and look for that the Blackhawks this. They don't like under the same collaboration between the nations in terms of facilities and -- lost one specific umbrella exclusive collaboration is doing very very good between licensed. For the side of it this -- a lot of cooperation between the US -- -- and destroy it in and out analyzing that satellite imagery. -- -- it was -- -- out of it seemed at first -- into the location renowned as being -- on boy -- boy imagery trying to. The digital ID imagery that everyone's getting a chance to toolkit so that sort of it's very very -- -- -- -- from the aircraft and the -- -- there's a lot of cooperation going on of the -- and it is a relatively small operation but it is growing baba died. We do that in -- supportive and -- at the moment answer the -- Dyson in Australia. By another question is is information they cost to Malaysia this resist could you describe how. Yeah the under control and aggression for the you have let little things that I didn't. That. It's still felt that and he said the note that he didn't go down we'll all. As a Mississippi based information that we have and we continue to or fauna many of emotion that comes seeing. As I understand I haven't seen the report that the information from the British Open -- clubs custom -- season and a -- more surety. That it went down in the southern Indian Ocean about. As you'd imagine as you get more information they've we have a chance look at more more we continue to or. -- -- -- -- -- -- This -- great I didn't do that so it all I don't the most Intel's Madonna song. -- news news. And didn't face. On down to. Google indeed being essentially a four teams in the window on how much of an impact he's going to have on the debate that exploded yesterday. Both answer very very good that measuring the tyrants we -- -- at the united from the last few guys in they held a mission there could -- and opposed the war decide. Fight well by -- a very good track only in the current debris field should be as the with a please will go to -- that came. But at the moment it's so visible by a. Crossed and then whenever -- people and it gives you seem to. To pick up there could be any different from anywhere around the world you know make sure that anything would be dealt with the most -- and avoid. Is being registered and then we can choose from on the sixers need -- And a hundred. -- why don't why don't to -- they tell some of the so it's again that's a -- conflicts and -- will -- -- what we have seasons that I took out of the system level Obama very unlike -- yeah I am not -- that makes the legislation on that it's like questions into action necessary -- from my issue is being passed what will with a violent between Malaysia for a strike and all the nations that. That up participating in the episode so long comfortable with all the information is getting to those people played. Made it to go to reforms insurance thank you very not yeah -- that they aren't all the nations of the participating in this. This is a -- complex search. You will develop over the the coming days as a minister since it's a -- is 2400 kilometers away from here it's in the middle another way. I'm sure many of brain on the -- crossed the -- now they've been understand the difficulties that wolf crews -- going through.
