DAP motion on N Korea rejected due to security reasons
A DAP motion to debate the diplomatic row between Malaysia and North Korea has been rejected due to security reasons.
In a statement, Batu Gajah MP V Sivakumar quoted Dewan Rakyat speaker Pandikar Amin Mulia as saying there was a need for Malaysia to maintain diplomatic communication channels with North Korea to ensure that Malaysians there are safe.
Sivakumar also quoted the speaker as saying there were concerns that actions contrary to such efforts would make resolving the crisis more difficult.
Keep Malaysiakini independent!
Malaysiakini will be 18 this year. That we’ve survived this long is because of you.
Your support matters. A lot. Especially those who pay RM150 annually, RM288 biennially or RM388 triennially to keep Malaysiakini independent from government influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.
Together, we’ve gone far. We’ve covered three prime ministers, four general elections, five Bersih rallies, and countless scandals. But the journey continues.
Help us deliver news and views that matter to Malaysians. Help us make a difference for Malaysia.
