Thailand on Saturday called off its search for the missing Malaysia Airlines plane over the Gulf of Thailand and Andaman Sea after Malaysian Premier said hunt for the aircraft will shift to two new destinations.
Navy commander Adm Narong Pipattanasai ordered the search to stop after Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak confirmed that flight MH370 had changed its course to a new destination, including Kazhakistan and southern Indian ocean, Thailand navy spokesman Adm Karn Dee-ubon said here.
But the navy still directed four ships – HTMS Pattani, HTMS Tapi, HTMS Songkhla and HTMS Sattahip – to stand ready in case the Malaysian government needed help for another search, said Rear Adm Karn.
