 Malaysian Transport Minister Liow Tiong Lai said Malaysia's confirmation that the debris found on the Reunion Island belongs to flight MH370 is concordant with the findings announced by the French side.

The findings are first traces of the plane since it vanished more than a year and a half ago. 
239 people were on board the flight, including 152 Chinese.
Transport Minister said on Thursday the maintenance seal found on the flaperon matches the record of Malaysia Airlines as well as the color of the wing part.
He added the evidences on the technical level and the circumstances all pointed to the fact that the debris belongs to MH370.
