LAHAD DATU: Dr M says M'sia, Sulu sultanate should end violence


SERI ISKANDAR: Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said both Malaysia and the Sulu sultanate should agree to put an end to the violence in Sabah.


The former prime minister said it would not be suffice if only one country agreed to do so.
"This means they should stop shooting at our security personnel ... it was never our policy to shoot at them (in the first place).
"So, it actually takes both sides to agree to put an end to the stand-off," he told reporters here today. 
He was commenting on United Nations secretary-general Ban Ki-moon's call for an end to violence and the start of a dialogue to end the conflict in Sabah between Malaysian forces and followers of the Sulu sultanate.
