Malaysia, UK Discuss Strategic Cooperation
Malaysia and the United Kingdom are examining ways to strengthen bilateral ties while looking into potential strategic cooperation in a number of areas, including security, trade and investment, green technology and digital economy.
Foreign Minister Datuk Seri Dr Zambry Abdul Kadir, who is currently on a working visit to the UK, said this matter was discussed during his meeting with the United Kingdom’s Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Affairs Secretary James Cleverly.
“We also discussed regional and international issues involving mutual interests,” he said in a statement on Wednesday (March 15).
During the meeting, Zambry also highlighted the issue of palm oil, which is one of Malaysia’s important exports, and also the safety and security of the Indo-Pacific region.
