JAKARTA, Aug 13 (Bernama) --The issue of overlapping demands on several border areas of Malaysia and Indonesia will probably be solved with a strong political will of leaders of the two countries.

Foreign Minister Datuk Seri Anifah Aman said the finding of solution through political will was probably the best method because even the technical committee had reached a dead end on the issue.

"This is a complex issue and has taken too long. The technical committee had met 28 times and reached a dead end in their attempts to find a peaceful solution to the issue. It will probably be solved through political will," he said.

He said the role of political will to solve the issue would be discussed between Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak and President Joko Widodo.

Anifah said this to the Malaysian media after attending dinner hosted by Malaysian Ambassador to Indonesia Datuk Sri Zahrain Mohamed Hashim here on Saturday.....
