SYDNEY, April 01. /ITAR-TASS/. In the Australian city of Perth, a Joint Agency Coordination Center (JACC) has been launched to coordinate the international search for the missing Boeing 777-200, which had disappeared on March 7 en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.

The center will provide the latest information about the search operation in the Indian Ocean, about 1,800 km off Australian western coast. Before April 1, the Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) was responsible for conducting the operation.

Australia’s former defense chief Angus Houston has been appointed the head of the coordination center.
