China’s Premier, Kequiang Li on Saturday pledged 14.49 million U.S. dollars for the search of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370, which disappeared without a trace in 2014.

Li made the pledge during a meeting with Australian Prime Minister, Malcolm Turnbull on the sidelines of the leaders’ summit of the Association of South-East Asian Nations (ASEAN) in Kuala Lumpur.

Australia is leading the search for the Beijing-bound MH370, which disappeared on March 8, 2014, about an hour after it took off from Kuala Lumpur International Airport.

About two thirds of the 239 people aboard the missing plane were Chinese citizens.

The aircraft was believed to have crashed in the southern Indian Ocean, but searchers have yet to recover the missing plane.

Earlier in November, Malaysian Transport Minister, Liow Lai said Malaysia had so far spent 53.95 million dollars in the search of the missing aircraft.

In July, search teams discovered a piece of wing on the shore of Reunion Island in the Indian Ocean, which was verified by aviation experts to be part of the missing flight MH370. (dpa/NAN)
