Annex 13 Safety Investigation Team for MH370, led by Datuk Kok Soo Chon, released the long-awaited Safety Investigation Report today, noting that this will not be the final report on the investigation as perceived by many.
The view was shared by frustrated family members of Australians who died in the bewildering aviation tragedy.
"The black box has not been found".
USA company Ocean Infinity later took over the search, but in May the search ended with no significant findings.
A 1,500 page report from the Malaysian government on missing Malaysia flight MH370 has answered few questions, but it has responded to numerous conspiracy theories surrounding the plane's disappearance. The report did not rule out "unlawful interference by a third party", according to Reuters.
The Malaysian-led report, prepared by a 19-member global team, reiterated the assertion that the plane was deliberately diverted and flown for more than seven hours after severing communications. "We are not of the opinion that it could have been an event committed by the pilot".
Kok said the final report was prepared in consultation with seven other countries, including Australia, the US, China, Indonesia, and the United Kingdom, which endorse its findings.
The jet disappeared on its way from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing on March 8, 2014 with 239 people on board.
"But at the same time we can not deny the fact that there was an air turnback".

"So we feel that there's also one possibility that could account for all these ..."
"The possibility of intervention by a third party can not be excluded", the 495-page report said.
Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang said Beijing had paid close attention to the MH370 investigation.
But grieving relatives said the technical document appeared to contain little new beyond a lengthy description of the plane's disappearance and search efforts, and that officials were unable to answer their questions.
But the search has ended and there are no plans to resume it, given the significant cost.
Three pieces of wreckage believed to be from MH370 have been found from as far north as Tanzania and as far south as South Africa. "No conclusions were drawn, no blame was assigned".
The safety report - required by the International Civil Aviation Organization after every accident - could not determine why the aircraft's transponder stopped transmitting location information, nor whether it broke up in mid-air or as it hit the southern Indian Ocean.
She said the meeting between relatives and officials descended into a "shouting match" as family members' frustration boiled over.
Police didn't find any data that showed a similar route flown by Flight 370 and concluded that there were "no unusual activities other than game-related flight simulations", Kok said.
"We want the answer of why the plane has gone missing and where it has gone. They looked but you couldn't have picked a worse part of the ocean".
To date, the main wreckage of MH370 has still not been found.
Investigators highlighted some mistakes made by the Kuala Lumpur and Ho Chi Minh City air traffic control centers and made safety recommendations to ensure such incidents do not occur again.
"The issuance of this report is a testament of Malaysia's commitment and transparency in complying with its obligations as one of the contracting States under Annex 13 of ICAO".
