KUALA LUMPUR: The state visit by the King of Saudi Arabia King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud to the country recently dispelled false allegations by irresponsible quarters that Malaysia is a failed country, said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.
He said the visit, which was significant from various aspects, proved that the wrong information conveyed to the Saudi Arabian government was baseless.
He said the state-visit by King Salman was significant in various aspects and in recognition of Malaysia being it the first country for His Majesty to visit in Southeast Asia.
“If there are quarters that say Malaysia is a failed country, economy is not stable, resulting in wrong information to be conveyed to Saudi Arabia, especially Aramco (Saudi Arabian Oil Company), that EPF (Employees Provident fund) is bankrupt, no money to pay the salary of civil servants.
“When King Salman visits Malaysia, gone are all these allegations made by irresponsible quarters,” he said during the session on ministers’ questions in the Dewan Rakyat today.
