The Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) Wednesday released a Technical Examination Report which has definitively said debris found in Mozambique originated from lost Malaysia Airlines flight 370.

Australia's Transport Minister Darren Chester said stenciling of key words and numbers fully matched the font used by Malaysia Airlines, and was not the same one used by the Boeing factory when delivering aircraft.

He said this "link' proved that both pieces, one from the horizontal stabilizer and the other from the wing, were from the missing Boeing 777 which went missing on March 8, 2014 with 239 people on board.

"I welcome the Technical Examination Report released by the Australian Transport Safety Bureau confirming the debris almost certainly originated from MH370," Chester said in a statement released on Wednesday.

"Stenciling on both parts of debris provided investigators with evidence of the link. The font and color of a number stenciled on the first part conforms to that developed and used by Malaysian Airlines.

"The second part contained the words 'No Step' with stenciling consistent with that used by Malaysian Airlines and a fastener attached to the part provided evidence linking the part to the aircraft's production line.

"I thank the team from ATSB, Geoscience Australia, Boeing and the Australian National University for their work."

Chester said the search for the missing jetliner would continue, and it was once again ready to searching the final 20,000 square kilometers in the search area.

MH370 was a scheduled passenger flight from Kuala Lumpur bound for Beijing.
