BANDAR SERI BEGAWAN – The opening period of the checkpoints at the Malaysia-Brunei Darussalam border will extended by two more hours up to midnight, said Malaysian Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.
The checkpoints are now open from 6 am to 10 pm.
Najib said the agreement was reached at the talks between him and the Sultan of Brunei Darussalam, Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah, here today.
The period was extended to overcome the difficulty faced by the people who travel between the two countries, he told a news conference after concluding his visit to Brunei Darussalam for the Annual Leaders Consultation. – BERNAMA
