Najib, Trump agree to further strengthen M’sia-US ties


KUALA LUMPUR: Prime Minister Najib Razak says he and President-elect Donald J Trump of the United States (US) have agreed to further strengthen Malaysia-US ties.

The Malaysian leader wrote on Facebook that they engaged in a very warm and productive telephone conversation earlier today.

“Among other matters, we talked about economic growth in the US and Malaysia.

“I congratulated him on his election victory, and we agreed to further strengthen US-Malaysia ties,” Najib said, adding that it was “great to reconnect with Trump following his outstanding win”.

Republican Trump, 70, defeated Democrat Hillary Clinton in the presidential race earlier this month to become the 45th president of the US.
