US deputy secretary of state meets with Najib
VISITING United States Deputy Secretary of State William J. Burns yesterday called on Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak at the Finance Ministry here.
Burns held discussions with Najib, who is also finance minister, for about 30 minutes.
US Ambassador to Malaysia Datuk Paul W. Jones and Malaysian Ambassador to the US Datuk Seri Dr Jamaludin Jarjis also attended the meeting.
Earlier, Burns called on Deputy Foreign Minister A. Kohilan Pillay at Wisma Putra. Burns had arrived in Malaysia on Wednesday for a two-day working visit.
Meanwhile, the US Embassy press office said Burns's visit was the latest by senior administrative officials of US President Barack Obama.
This reflected the importance of US' relationship with Malaysia as a vital partner in Southeast Asia, it said.
Prior to his departure, Burns was quoted as saying: "Obama, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and I are committed to building strong, cooperative relations with Malaysia and other countries in the Asia-Pacific.
"The US seeks to work together with nations across the region to promote economic growth and security.
"The US and Malaysia share common interests in fostering prosperity and peace in the world.
"Obama and Najib met just last month in Bali and discussed a range of important bilateral and multilateral issues facing our countries.
"Looking ahead, the investments we are making now will lead to further peace and prosperity."
