KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 24 (Bernama) -- Foreign missions in the country have sent congratulatory messages to Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim who was appointed as Malaysia’s 10th prime minister on Thursday.

 “Congratulations to Anwar Ibrahim on his election as Malaysia’s 10th Prime Minister. U.S. Embassy Kuala Lumpur looks forward to continuing to strengthen the U.S.-Malaysia strategic partnership under your leadership,” he said on the message posted on the embassy official Twitter account U.S Embassy KL, today.

“Tahniah to Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim on becoming Malaysia’s 10th Prime Minister! Australia & Malaysia are the closest of friends.

Japan’s Ambassador to Malaysia Takahashi Katsuhiko in congratulating Anwar said he sincerely hoped that the new government will lead Malaysia in unity and further promote Japan-Malaysia relations.
