Malaysian government has agreed to an offer by a USA exploration company to resume the search for the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 on a "no cure, no fee" basis, Transportation Minister Liow Tiong Lai said Saturday.

It's been almost four years since the Boeing 777 mysteriously disappeared from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 people on board. Research vessel Seabed Constructor, leased by exploration firm Ocean Infinity, has set off from South Africa for the Indian Ocean with the aim of arriving in the search zone by mid-January, a source familiar with the matter said.

Without finding a trace of the aircraft, a two-year underwater search led by the Australian Transport Safety Bureau ended a year ago with a price tag of $200 million to Australian, Malaysian and Chinese taxpayers.

"The basis of the offer from Ocean Infinity is based on 'no cure, no fee, '" Malaysian Transport Minister Liow Tiong Lai said Saturday.

The message, seen by AFP, said that the "MH370 Response Team wishes to note that the Government of Malaysia has engaged Ocean Infinity to undertake further search operation for MH370".

With the variation in cancer death rate, the lifetime probability is still higher in men than women. From 2014 to 2015, of the 10 leading causes of death, only cancer declined.

"China family members, therefore, call for the public release of the full terms and conditions negotiated between the Malaysian government and Ocean Infinity".

"That means they are willing to search the area of 25,000 square kilometers (9,653 square miles) pointed out by the expert group near the Australian waters", he said.

He said his Government was committed to continue with the search.

The plane vanished over the southern Indian Ocean on 8 March 2014 in one of the biggest mysteries in modern aviation.

Through a text sent to the victims'families, the company, which specializes in the exploration of the seabed, explained that a reconnaissance vessel has already entered the search area this week.
