PUTRAJAYA: Malaysia and India share a common position in combating terrorism and extremism, said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.
In a joint press conference with his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi, Najib said both leaders had expressed strong condemnation for terrorism in all its forms and manifestations.
“We call upon all states to reject terrorism and bring perpetrators of terrorism to justice.
“We also agree to continue sharing of information and best practises to address the challenges post by terrorism and other traditional and non-traditional threats,” said Najib Monday.
He added that both countries have also agreed to continue the ongoing cooperation on counter-terrorism and have agreed to further enhance relations in this field.
This is Modi’s first official visit since he took office in May last year. He was in Malaysia to also attend the 27th Asean Summit and related summits.
Najib also said both countries are looking to further expand the cooperation in terms of education.
Najib said many Malaysians have received their education in India particularly in medicine.
“India is looking for recognition of Indian degrees in the field of IT and engineering.
“I have asked the Higher Education Ministry and the Malaysian Qualification Agency to act on this,” said Najib.
