PM Anwar: Malaysia and China are equal partners, trusted friends

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has dismissed the notion that Malaysia would be disadvantaged via its relations with China.

On the contrary he pointed out that both nations are equal partner and trusted friends.

“My discussions with Premier Li Qiang this week reaffirmed my belief in the friendly, courteous, and respectful nature of Chinese leadership towards Malaysia,” he said via his Facebook page.

“Despite the barrage of questions and narratives, especially from the West, I have witnessed a profound understanding and appreciation of cultural differences from our Chinese counterparts.

“Throughout our discussions, there was no hint of arrogance or condescension. We tackled contentious issues as equal partners and trusted friends.

“I take this opportunity to reassure others, especially fellow Malaysians, our relationship with China reflects genuine respect and friendship. We remain committed to nurturing and strengthening the bonds between Malaysia and China.”

Anwar’s comments comes shortly after Putrajaya hosted 50th diplomatic anniversary of Malaysia and China.
