TUESDAY, 10 MARCH – The organising of the Formation of Malaysia Agreement 1963 Forum by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs at the Lecture Hall Complex 2, Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS) recently received positive reaction.
State Legislative Assembly Speaker, Datuk Seri Panglima Dr. Mohd Salleh Tun Haji Said Keruak commented that the organisation of the forum was the best platform to discuss many things related to the interest of the state.
He said, such approach was indeed good as it had discussed many things that were associated with the Malaysian Agreement and the most important was that political ideology was positively set aside during this event.
“I fully agree with the organisation of the forum recently in UMS where the Foreign Minister, Datuk Seri Anifah Aman was himself the moderator, along with 12 invited panelists of diverse background,” he said.
Salleh was sure that the federal government always welcomed such forum as it was good and based on the findings of the meeting there were some things needed to be acted upon and followed-up.
“We have to ensure that negotiations can be done and I’m happy when all parties agreed to curb all these elements that wanted to separate Sabah and Sarawak,” he added.
He was speaking to reporters after delivering a Luncheon Talk on ‘Conflict in an Organisation’ organised by the Association of Professional and Management (Non-Academic) Employees UMS. – SS (fl)
