BEIJING — The Chinese aviation regulator said on Wednesday that US investigators from the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) confirmed that they had not released any information about the China Eastern crash to the media, the state-owned Global Times reported.
WSJ and Reuters, citing sources, have reported that investigators investigating the crash of a China Eastern Airlines jet are investigating whether it was due to deliberate action in the cockpit, with no evidence of a technical malfunction.
The Civil Aviation Administration of China said it would communicate closely with investigative parties and publish relevant information in a timely and accurate manner, the Global Times said.
CAAC did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Reuters.
