Finance Minister II Johari Abdul Ghani said Malaysia will not end up like Sri Lanka, which was forced to lease its properties over its indebtedness to China.

"That is Sri Lanka, this is Malaysia," Johari said when met at an event in Kuala Lumpur today.

He was responding to prominent socio-economic activist and Bantah TPPA deputy chairperson Azlan Awang, who was quoted by news portal Free Malaysia Today as warning the government of the risks of putting Malaysia in the same trouble that Sri Lanka was over its indebtedness to China.
