"With the release of the Report, my heart goes out to the loved one of those on board flight MH370 as Malaysia stands in solidarity together with the worldwide community and the next-of-kin during this trying time", he said. However, he said the possibility could not be ruled out as the plane was turned around manually.
Investigators have released a report on missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 saying the plane's controls were likely deliberately manipulated to take it off course, but they were not able to determine who was responsible.
MH370 piloted by Captain Zaharie disappeared on March 8, 2014, while flying from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.
Head investigator Datuk Kok Soo Chon said while its unlikely a deliberate diversion by the pilot or first officer, they can not exclude the possibility of a third party interference.
"The answer can only be conclusive if the wreckage is found", he said when asked of they would ever find out what happened on the plane.
The MH370 story is etched in aviation history as the most weird incident, how a Boeing 777 with 239 people onboard vanished under mysterious circumstances, unleashing never ending scenarios provided both by aviation experts and conspiracy theorists.
U.S. and European Union agree to work towards lower trade barriers
Farm groups generally have stood by Trump during the trade war although anxiety has begun to rise in farm country. Trump is meeting Wednesday with European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker (zhahn-KLOHD' YUN'-kur).
Speaking to a media conference today, Kok said the conclusion of the investigations is that MH370 deviated from its path, and this was more than the result of system anomalies, as the air turn-back was made under manual control.
Malaysia's government has said it is open to resume searching if credible evidence of the plane's location emerges.
Danica Weeks, whose husband Paul was on board, said the Malaysian government only offered on Thursday to fly her to the briefing for families, which was too little notice for a mother-of-two with a full-time job and pets.
The last communication from the plane was from the Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah who signed off with "Good night, Malaysian three seven zero", as the plane left the Malaysian airspace. The report said that investigators had determined that such a fire did not take place. They are nowhere near to closure.
The family members were being given the official investigation team's report in the morning at the Malaysian transport ministry and were set to be briefed by officials, and it was due to be released publicly in the afternoon.
In May 60 Minutes reporter Tara Brown brought the world's best aviation minds together to forensically reconstruct MH370's final minutes and determine what may have happened to the jet.

It was the second major search after Australia, China and Malaysia ended a fruitless $147 million search across an area of 120,000 sq km past year.
"The disappearance of MH370 and the search effort are unprecedented in commercial aviation history", the Malaysian report said Monday.
Officials said this is still not a final accounting because the plane has not been found.
The Kuala Lumpur Air Traffic Control lost contact with the doomed flight at 1:19am Malaysia time. But that search was called off after failing to find anything. The plane is believed to have crashed somewhere in the Indian Ocean.
Theories range from mechanical error or a remote-controlled crash, to more weird explanations like alien abduction and a Russian plot.
Pieces of aircraft debris found washed up on the coast of east Africa and the French island of Réunion, thousands of kilometers from the likely crash site, were confirmed to be from the Boeing Co.
