‘I HAVE FAITH IN GOVT’
Mum positive that PM will help bring her daughter home
“T HANK you, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak. I believe the government will do its best to bring back my daughter,” said Maznah Adnan, the mother of one of the Malaysians in Pyongyang.
Maznah, 63, said as a mother, she was relieved to know that her daughter, Iza Karmila Ramli, 33, and her family in Pyongyang were safe after listening to the conversation between Najib and her son-in-law, Mohd Nor Azrin Md Zain, on Thursday.
She described the phone call as a motivation for her to continue praying, apart from believing that the prime minister would resolve the conflict without compromising the safety of Malaysians in North Korea.
“I believe that our prime minister is a credible leader, who is able to find a solution to this problem. I thank him and appeal to the government to bring back my daughter’s family immediately,” she said at her residence here.
Iza Karmila, an administrative and diplomatic officer, her husband, Mohd Nor Azrin, a counsellor at the Malaysian embassy in Pyongyang, and their three children — Annur Zulaikha, Aynur Zhafirah and Ayscha Zinnirah — are among 11 Malaysians initially not allowed to leave the country since March 7.
Maznah said she hoped her daughter and family would stay strong in facing the ordeal.
“Alhamdulillah, from the conversation, I was told that Nor Azrin and her family are safe and healthy. I have yet to receive a call from my daughter after our last phone call on Tuesday.
“I will continue to pray for her and her family, as well as for other Malaysians in North Korea.”
