According to the Foreign Minister, Thailand is willing to provide radar record on aircraft passing through Thailand’s airspace on March 8th, the day Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 went missing.

Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Surapong Tovichakchaikul said Thai authorities would have the radar report of planes flying over Thailand ready if it was requested by the Malaysian government, adding that the information was not confidential and the Thai government would do whatever it took to help the Malaysian side track down its missing jet.

Thai foreign ministerAs for speculations that linked the missing plane incident to the southern unrest in Thailand’s Deep South, the minister said it was just one of the many possibilities that had been raised by Malaysia.

Lastly, he has affirmed that Thailand would be on 24-hour stand-by if Malaysia asked for further assistance.

The Thai Navy has suspended its search for the Boeing B 777-200 aircraft since Saturday, after Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak’s announcement confirming that communications of the missing aircraft were intentionally disabled and its movements were consistent with a deliberate act by someone who turned the jet back across the Malaysian coast.
