Zahid Succeeds In Strengthening Malaysia-UK Relations In First Visit

in Latest

LONDON – Despite a brief working visit, Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri
Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi made a successful first visit to the United Kingdom (UK),
clearly paving the way for bilateral Malaysia-UK cooperation in new specialist
fields beside sharing experience in security management in the ever challenging
times.

This achievement can be attributed to the fact that no country in the world
can now deal with the threat of transnational crimes and terrorism unilaterally
but needed strategic cooperation at the international level, either bilaterally
or multilaterally.

It is quite interesting that Ahmad Zahid’s visit this time is that not only
Malaysian security agencies will have the opportunity to learn a lot from the UK
on the management of the national security system, but UK, as a developed
nation, is also keen to learn from Malaysia’s experience in handling the problem
of militant Islam and religious extremists in the de-radicalisation programme.

For Ahmad Zahid, who is also Home Minister, his meetings and discussions
with his counterpart, UK Home Secretary and heads of security agencies in London
and in Manchester during his four-day visit, greatly contributed to the
anticipated success.

He also met the Director General of Communication Headquarters (GCHQ)
Richard Hannigan despite having unable to accept the UK government’s invitation
to Cheltenham to see the CGHQ facility. – Bernama
