The International Civil Aviation Organization is calling a special meeting next month, to deal with the missing Malaysian airliner flight MH370.
State and industry executives will meet May 12th and 13th in Montreal to discuss the global tracking of airline flights.
Council President Dr. Olumuyiwa Benard Aliu said the ICAO will use the meeting to advance talks on aircraft and satallite capabilities needed for worldwide flight tracking.
"The loss of an aircraft and any loss of life are always of utmost concern to ICAO and to the entire air transport community," President Aliu said. "The unprecedented and unusual circumstances of flight MH 370 have been particularly difficult for civil aviation officials to to resolve at this point, and the lack of definitive answers has been much harder still for victims' families to come to terms with. They, above all, will benefit from the fuller explanation of this accident."
Flight MH-370 was carrying 239 people -- including two Canadians -- when it vanished March 8th.
