PM looks forward to expanding Malaysia-US ties

PETALING JAYA: Following a warm welcome to the White House, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak is looking forward to expanding Malaysia’s trade and security ties with the United States.

“Great to see you again @realDonaldTrump! Honoured to visit WH for the first time - thanks! Look forward to expanding our trade & security ties,” tweeted the Prime Minister from his official Twitter account @najibrazak.

Also included was a quote of the American president’s tweet sent out early Wednesday morning, which included a half-minute video commemorating Najib’s visit: “It was a great honour to welcome Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak of Malaysia and his distinguished delegation to the @WhiteHouse today!”

The meeting, at the invitation of Trump, marks the 60th anniversary of bilateral ties between Malaysia and the United States.

Najib arrived in US on Monday for the meeting at the White House.
