The government has explained the stopover of its new VIP jet in Almaty, Kazakhstan where Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak had just hosted a wedding reception for his daughter last month, to bad weather and refuelling.

The Prime Minister’s Department (PMD) said the jet from Malta stopped in Germany and Kazakhstan while en-route to Malaysia due to "prevailing weather conditions", Bernama reported today.
