'Provocative remarks, violence on Malaysian interest in Indonesia unacceptable'
PUTRAJAYA: Malaysia could neither accept acts of violence on its interests in Indonesia, nor the provocative remarks and statements made by several parties against the former, said Foreign Minister Datuk Seri Anifah Aman.
He said the acts of violence by a group of protesters, believed to represent Pemuda Pancasila, in front of the Malaysian Embassy in Kuningan and Wisma Malaysia in Menteng, Jakarta on June 22, as well as the provocative remarks by a member of the Indonesian Council of Representatives in a television programme on June 21, should be censured.
"It is most regrettable that the wild acts and provocative comments were made, following unfounded accusations and misunderstanding of a plan to preserve and protect the cultural heritage of the Mandailing community which originated from Sumatra to Malaysia.
"The programme was not intended to mean the cultural heritage originated from Malaysia," he said in a statement here today.
Anifah said the action by a group of protesters resulted in causing hurt to a security guard at the Malaysian Embassy in Wisma Malaysia, while another guard was slightly injured.
Besides the injuries sustained by the two security guards who were Indonesian nationals, the violence caused damage to Wisma Malaysia and its surrounding areas, as well as posed threat to the staff and their families staying there.
"Based on the special relations and mutual benefits long established in the past between Malaysia and Indonesia, the Malaysian Government believes the Indonesian Government should take measures in handling aggressive and provocative acts," noted Anifah.
He said the Malaysian Government had previously requested that its premises be protected from any threat, in line with the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations 1961.
Meanwhile, Wisma Putra has summoned the charges d'affaires of the Indonesian Embassy in Kuala Lumpur for a meeting tomorrow, on the said incidents. -- BERNAMA
