Shafie Trusts Sabah Federal Ministers Have Performed Well


KOTA KINABALU: Sabah Chief Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Shafie Apdal believes that Sabah ministers in the federal government have performed well for the good of the country, including the interests of Sabah.

However, he said it was normal that they would highlight issues that were relevant and of concern to Sabah and their constituencies during cabinet meetings.

“I believe they have raised issues for the good of the country as a whole. Of course, for the interests of Sabah as well.

“We have a different platform where we raise issues concerning the Malaysia Agreement 1963 (MA63), at which we frequently meet  Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad,” he told the media after launching a National Day celebration held by Sutera Harbour Resort here Monday.

Mohd Shafie declined to comment further on the progress of MA63 as the meeting is ongoing, but hoped the outcome would be announced during the coming National Day celebration.
