China urges Malaysia to continue to investigate cause of MH370 incident

Zhang Yongli, whose daughter was aboard Malaysia Airlines flight MH370, is seen with a picture of China's President Xi Jinping hung on him as he and other families express their demands to Malaysia Airlines outside its Beijing office on Aug 6, 2015.

[BEIJING] China called on Malaysia on Thursday to continue investigating what happened to a missing Malaysia Airlines flight after Kuala Lumpur said a piece of a wing that washed up on an Indian Ocean island beach last week was part of the plane's wreckage.

In a statement on the foreign ministry website, spokeswoman Hua Chunying also urged Malaysia to "earnestly safeguard the legitimate rights and interests" of the families of the victims.
