KIEV (Reuters) - Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseny Yatseniuk said on Friday his government would ask parliament to abandon Ukraine's non-aligned status and set the country on a course to seek to become a member of U.S.-led NATO. Yatseniuk spoke at a government meeting while government troops were locked in a five-month conflict with Russian-backed separatist rebels. He added that the basic aim of Ukrainian foreign policy remained to become a member of the European Union. (Reporting by Pavel Polityuk; Writing By Richard Balmforth; Editing by Andrew Heavens)

An airport worker walks between Malaysia Airlines planes at Kuala Lumpur International AirportBy Al-Zaquan Amer Hamzah KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) - Malaysia Airlines (MAS) will slash nearly a third of its 20,000 workforce and cut back its global route network as part of a radical 6 billion ringgit ($1.9 billion) restructuring following the devastating impact of two jetliner disasters. The 42-year-old company will be de-listed by the end of the year under the broad revival plan announced by state fund Khazanah Nasional on Friday that aims to bring long-elusive efficiency and global standards to the loss-making carrier. "Recent tragic events and ongoing difficulties at MAS have created a perfect storm that is allowing this restructuring to take place," Khazanah Managing Director Azman Mokhtar told reporters in Kuala Lumpur. Under the restructuring plan, which was approved by Malaysia's cabinet this week, MAS' assets and liabilities will be transferred to a new company with Khazanah injecting up to 6 billion ringgit.

Azman Mokhtar, managing director of state investment fund Khazanah Nasional Berhad which owns Malaysia Airlines, addresses media in Kuala Lumpur, August 29, 2014Malaysia Airlines will slash thousands of staff, trim its route network, and replace its CEO under a plan announced Friday to stave off bankruptcy after two air tragedies plunged the already troubled carrier deeper into crisis. State investment fund Khazanah Nasional, which has taken control of the failing flag carrier, said it planned to pump 6 billion ringgit ($1.9 billion) into the airline, hoping the changes will return the company to profitability within three years. Khazanah's Managing Director Azman Mokhtar said, however, there were no plans to change the carrier's name -- now deeply tarnished by its association with the MH370 and MH17 tragedies. "The combination of measures announced today will enable our national airline to be revived," said Azman.
