M'sia, China agree to resolve territorial disputes in S China Sea peacefully
KOTA KINABALU: Malaysia and China agreed that any territorial dispute or conflict in the South China Sea should be resolved peacefully via discussions.
Malaysian Foreign Minister Datuk Seri Anifah Aman said both countries stressed the importance of diplomacy, especially countries involved, to engage in dialogues to resolve issues, so as to ensure peace in the region.
"Our discussion was very positive and I believe the bilateral relationship between Malaysia and China will continue to strengthen," he told reporters after attending a bilateral meeting with China's Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi, here today.
Anifah said more direct flights from China to Sabah, would be introduced to enhance the tourism sector and strengthen the relationship between both countries in various sectors.
He said a proposal for China to set up Consulate General's office in Malaysia would expedite and ease the process of entry for leaders from both countries as well as tourist arrivals.
Yang Jiechi who is on a three-day official working visit to Sabah since Aug 11, also recognised the role played by Malaysia to strengthen China's relationship with Asean countries.
The Chinese Foreign Minister also paid a courtesy call on Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak during a breaking of fast ceremony held at the Kimanis Parliamentary constituency last night. -- BERNAMA
