Later, the minister specified he was referring to aircraft seats and windows but could not confirm the items found on Reunion Island were debris from the missing Malaysia Airlines’ Boeing.
"They are little parts, but the debris cannot be verified if it belongs to MH370," he said.
He added that the newly discovered debris was sent to be verified by French authorities.
Earlier, Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak announced that the debris found last week on Reunion Island belong to the missing plane. French prosecutors said they could not confirm the allegations.
MH370, en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, went missing with 227 passengers and 12 crew members onboard on March 8, 2014. An exhaustive search failed to turn up any evidence of the aircraft, with most of the rescue operation focused on a 46,000 square mile stretch of water off the west coast of Australia.
The disappearance created one of the greatest mysteries in the history of aviation, sparking an unprecedented hunt in the Indian Ocean.
