Datuk Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali, Malaysia’s minister of international trade and industry who is also the government’s designated second-in-command, said that discussions will soon start and all options will be considered to save the countries airline industry.

He told in an interview that a discussion regarding the possibility of this merger had also taken place last year, however, they need to be continued.
