SUBANG, 10 May 2017: 

The Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF) refuted reports that the Japanese government will hand over a maritime patrol aircraft P-3C Orion to Malaysia for free.

RMAF chief general Datuk Seri Affendi Buang said reports on local and foreign media portals on the matter which went viral were not true.

Ït could be a rumour…we did not receive any offer or decision officially so far.”

Affendi made the statement when asked to comment on the information which went viral on social websites that the Japanese government was reported to be seeking ways to give Malaysia the P-3C Orion maritime patrol plane for free.

Several foreign portals including those in Japan have been reporting on the matter in the past one week when the authenticity of the news is not known.
