Under heavy pressure, he became angry: “We have no problem with China”!

According to a report on the Deutsche Welle radio website on March 4, Malaysian Prime Minister Anwar said at the 2024 ASEAN-Australia Special Summit in Melbourne, Australia: “We are an independent country, completely independent, and we do not want to take orders from any big country.”

“So, on the one hand, we remain an important friend of the United States, Europe and Australia, but at the same time, they should not prevent us from being friendly with one of our most important neighbours, China,” he said.

“If they have a problem with China, that shouldn’t be applied to us. We have no problem with China.”

Anwar made this statement at a joint press conference with Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese.

Asked about his denunciation of “Sinophobia” in the West in an interview with the Financial Times last month, Anwar said he was responding to criticism of Malaysia’s “extra emphasis on China.”

China is Malaysia’s largest trading partner.
