Malaysia to forge cross-border cooperation

TAWAU: The Ministry of Defence will work closely with three neighbouring countries, namely the Philippines, Indonesia, and Brunei to strengthen security in Sabah, particularly in the east coast.

Its minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein said sharing of experience and information on security issues among the four countries was very important and helpful in terms of trainings, assets and intelligence.

He told the media this after visiting the Joint-Task-Force II, Kukusan Camp here yesterday together with the United States Marines Force Pacific Commanding General Lieutenant General Terry Robling.

“Terry spent one day to observe the complexity along the 1,700km coastline.

“Besides observing the complexity at the forward bases, ships, islands and resorts, Terry would also review the inland defence.

“Perhaps other parties (countries) would also wish to take part in monitoring for the safety of the people. The invasion and kidnapping cases that occurred not only affected Malaysia but also the neighbouring countries,” Hishammuddin said.
