KUALA LUMPUR, Aug. 14 (Xinhua) -- Malaysian Transport Minister Liow Tiong Lai said here Friday that most of the debris found in the Maldives is unrelated to the missing flight of Malaysian Airlines MH370.

Liow said that according to the report of the Malaysia investigation team in Maldives, most of the debris there are negative and not plane material.

"The Malaysian investigation team have arrived in Maldives and witnessed what they call the debris. Most of the debris is negative. They are not related to the MH370, and they are not plane material," he said.

Liow said that if the investigation team will bring back any debris, they will be sent to the international investigation team.

What happened on board the MH370 has become one of the biggest mysteries in aviation history after it vanished en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with its 239 passengers and crew on March 8, 2014.

Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak said last week that the debris recently found on the Reunion Island in the Indian Ocean was confirmed to be part of the aircraft.
