No trace of missing Malaysian plane: Pakistan
Islamabad: Rubbishing US media reports suggesting missing Malaysian plane was taken to Pakistan, Islamabad said Sunday that its radar network had no information about the aircraft, but the country is ready to share any information if it is available, Xinhua reported.
The comments came from the Pakistani foreign ministry after Malaysian government asked 25 countries, including Pakistan, for assistance as the search for the missing jetliner continued Sunday.
"No information about the Malaysian plane is available at our radar as it has not entered our (air) space," the ministry`s spokesperson, Tasnim Aslam, told media in response to Malaysian government`s request. "Our radar system has no information about the Malaysian aircraft as it has never contacted our control tower."
The Pakistani spokesperson also dismissed US media reports that the missing aircraft might have been taken to Pakistan.
"They (the US media) are losing their credibility by publishing such stories," she said, adding that Malaysian authorities have not only sought Pakistan`s help but also more than 20 countries.
Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Pakistan, Bangladesh, India, China, Myanmar, Laos, Cambodia, Thailand and Australia have been approached.
