Home Minister Muhyiddin Yassin urged Malaysians to strengthen the spirit of unity and mutual respect in facing greater challenges ahead.
Muhyiddin, who arrived in Washington, DC, on Sunday to begin a four-day working visit to the United States, also expressed the hope that all Malaysians would enhance the spirit of cooperation and comradeship among themselves.
In his message in conjunction with Malaysia Day 2019, Muhyiddin, who is also Bersatu president, stressed that the people should look forward to what they must do together to develop the country in all fields.
“This has (indeed) been our goal since Malaysia was established decades ago. However, the future challenges are even greater.
“Therefore, what we need to emphasise is greater cooperation, mutual respect regardless of race and ethnicity, and forging closer ties to build a more successful Malaysia,” said Muhyiddin.
