COM­MON GOALS IN ASIA

The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

BANGKOK: Asia should pro­mote com­mon de­vel­op­ment and prosperity, and re­sist “in­ter­fer­ence from out­side pow­ers,” said Prime Min­is­ter Datuk Seri Na­jib Ab­dul Razak. He said the era of old em­pires are long gone and Asians are firm that its cul­tures, laws and sovereignty be re­spected by all. “If this is to be the Asian cen­tury, and I be­lieve it is, we must stand tall and seize con­trol of our own des­tiny. Our peo­ples and our coun­tries are step­ping up to the chal­lenge of lead­er­ship as the cen­tre of global grav­ity shifts to the east ... to Asia,” Na­jib said. – Ber­nama
