President Barack Obama said Wednesday that finding missing Malaysian Airlines flight 370 is “a top priority.”
“We have put every resource we have available at the disposal of the search process,” Obama told Dallas news station KDFW. “There’s been close cooperation with the Malaysian government,” Obama said. “Anybody who typically deals with anything related to our aviation system is available.”
The comments were the president’s first public statements on the ongoing mystery surrounding the disappeared flight.
“We want to send out our thoughts and prayers to all the families that have been affected but particularly our American families. I can only imagine what they’re going through,” Obama said.
