KUALA LUMPUR – Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak has congratulated Donald Trump for winning the United States presidential election and expressed the wish for the relationship between the two countries to continue under his leadership.
Najib said the US and Malaysia elevated their relationship to a comprehensive partnership in 2014 and had been firm allies in the worldwide fight against terrrorism and extremism.
“We look forward to continuing this partnership under President-elect Trump.
“I congratulate him on this extraordinary victory and look forward to meeting him again soon,” the Prime Minister said in a statement here today.
The Republican Trump beat Democrat Hillary Clinton in a close race early today to become the 45th US President, pulling off a major upset after what some have described as a bitter and at times ugly campaign. – BERNAMA
