Last update: 11/07/2019
KUALA LUMPUR, July 11 (Bernama) – As Timor-Leste is geographically located in Southeast Asia, Malaysia supports its entrée into ASEAN as the 11th member, Foreign Affairs Minister, Datuk Saifuddin Abdullah, told the Dewan Rakyat today.

In reply to a question from Wong Hon Wai (DAP-Bukit Bendera), he said the two countries enjoy a close friendship and the (decision) is also consistent with (a point in) Article 6 of the ASEAN Charter on the admission of new members.

“Aside from this, it is in line with the ASEAN principle which Malaysia holds to of ‘prosper thy neighbour’,” he said.
