Sun.Star Davao - - TOP STORIES -

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia – Malaysia rolled out the red car­pet Wed­nes­day for New Zealand’s gov­er­nor gen­eral, who is mark­ing 60 years of diplo­matic ties be­tween the coun­tries.

Patsy Reddy’s visit is the first to Malaysia by a New Zealand gov­er­nor gen­eral since Sil­via Cartwright’s trip in 2004. The gov­er­nor gen­eral acts as Queen Elizabeth II’s rep­re­sen­ta­tive in New Zealand and is a largely cer­e­mo­nial po­si­tion.

Reddy, who ar­rived in Kuala Lumpur late Tues­day for a four-day visit, was given a 21-gun salute at a state wel­com­ing cer­e­mony in Par­lia­ment at­tended by Malaysia’s king, Prime Min­is­ter Na­jib Razak and Cabi­net min­is­ters.
