It doesn't matter where the investigations are carried out as long as the truth about the missing Malaysia Airlines MH370 plane is out, said Malaysia's Acting Transport Minister Hishammuddin Hussein.

As the search for the missing plane entered its second month, Mr Hishammuddin, who is Malaysia's point man in this crisis, said it is crucial to find the black box and have experts analyse the information in it.

"It is not just getting the black box. It's finding out what's in the black box," he told The Straits Times in an interview on Tuesday.
