Chinese relatives of passengers on board missing Flight MH370 said Thursday the discovery of possible debris from the missing plane would mean nothing until their loved ones were found, NBC News reported.
"I have no reaction yet because it's not confirmed," Wang Le, whose mother was aboard the plane, told NBC News. "There have been too many updates before and many were not reliable, so I think I'd rather wait for confirmation."
Of the 239 people on board the Malaysian Airlines Boeing 777 that disappeared on March 8 last year, 153 were Chinese citizens.
The piece of debris was found off the southern tip of Africa. Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei said he has been in contact with other countries regarding the debris, and they are all watching for progress.
