SEPANG, MALAYSIA (RTM/CNN) - Malaysia is all set to send out all its assets once experts have refined the new search area for the missing Malaysia Airlines Plane MH370, in the Indian Ocean.

Acting transport minister Hishammuddin Hussein said the Search and Recovery (SAR) operation is in the transition phase and two survey ships are deployed to map the seabed.

"We have never stopped looking for MH370. Together with China and Australia, we are conducting the bathymetric survey of the ocean floor," Hishammudin said.

He added a Dutch vessel, The Fugro Equator, is conducting survey of the seabed and would soon be joined by Chinese vessel Zhu Kezhen.

Malaysia would send out vessels and equipment obtained from both the government and private sector that could assist in locating the missing aircraft.

He told reporters after being briefed on Klia 2 Airport terminal updates in Sepang.

Hishammuddin also said Malaysia, China and Australia would disclose the new search area soon, probably in one or two weeks.

This followed new analysis of the plane's flight path.
