Malaysia Did Not Overwelcome LKY
Malaysia did not overwelcome Singapore Minister Mentor Lee Kuan Yew during his eight-day visit to the country, early this month, said Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.
The prime minister said Lee was not accorded more than what he deserved.
“I don’t think we gave him more than (what) he deserved,” he told reporters after opening the 7th Heads of Mission Conference at the Putrajaya International Convention Centre here Monday.
He said this when answering a question on whether Malaysia had overwelcomed the minister mentor.
Najib said he did not think Lee wanted to interfere in the country’s internal affairs when the latter made some comments.
“I don’t think so…(that) he wanted to interfere. I think he knows that any suggestion that he is trying to interfere would be counter-productive.
“His visit was for a fact-finding tour of the situation in Malaysia. We allowed it,” added the prime minister.
