Foun­da­tion calls on Malaysians to unite in the face of ac­cu­sa­tions

New Straits Times - - News / Story Of The Day -

The Global Move­ment of Moder­ates Foun­da­tion (GMMF) has called on Malaysians to unite be­hind the coun­try in its di­plo­matic row with North Korea.

In a state­ment, the foun­da­tion voiced its sup­port for the coun­try’s lead­er­ship in han­dling the sit­u­a­tion.

GMMF ex­ec­u­tive chair­man and chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer Datuk Dr Nasharudin Mat Isa said Malaysians, ir­re­spec­tive of ide­olo­gies, must unite in the face of ac­cu­sa­tions over Malaysia’s han­dling of Kim Jong-nam’s mur­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

“GMMF is con­cerned about the fate of the 11 Malaysians who are stuck in Py­ongyang.

“The foun­da­tion ex­presses its sup­port and con­fi­dence in the lead­er­ship of the Malaysian gov­ern­ment in han­dling the del­i­cate and un­prece­dented sit­u­a­tion.

“The strong ac­cu­sa­tions over Malaysia’s han­dling of the in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the Feb 13 killing call for the unity of Malaysians, ir­re­spec­tive of ide­olo­gies and back­grounds.”

Nasharudin said the coun­try’s law and up­hold­ing of jus­tice was non-ne­go­tiable, in spite of mu­tual in­ter­ests and trade be­tween the coun­tries.

“GMMF prays for the safety and well­be­ing of the Malaysians in Py­ongyang.”
