KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama) – Malaysian Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said Malaysia will promote international peace and security by advancing its own vision of peace and moderation.
“Malaysia has a strong record of promoting peace, moderation and security around the world. Our brokering of peace in the southern Philippines is one example.
“Our selection to the (UN) Security Council is an endorsement of Malaysia’s foreign policy. We are increasingly being recognised and valued as a global partner for peace and security,” he said.
Najib responded in a video message today to Malaysia’s success in securing a seat in the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) as a non-permanent member from Jan 1, 2015, to Dec 31, 2016, in New York on Thursday.
In the message, released on his Facebook account, Najibrazak.com, and also YouTube, he said all Malaysians should feel proud of this achievement. Najib pointed out that promoting international peace and security was a vision that he believed would ensure world peace.
