CLOSE­NESS CAN HELP COUNTER TER­ROR­ISM

The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

KLU­ANG: Close­ness among Asean coun­tries built through joint mil­i­tary ex­er­cises each year has forged re­gional un­der­stand­ing, which could help in the fight against Is­lamic State threats in the re­gion. Army field com­man­der Lt-Gen Datuk Seri Zulkiple Kas­sim said Malaysia had con­ducted joint mil­i­tary ex­er­cises with al­most all Asean mem­ber coun­tries. “The joint ex­er­cises are held each year to build re­gional un­der­stand­ing. It is one of the plat­forms for us (in fac­ing re­gional threats),” he said. – Ber­nama
