Datuk Seri Azmin Ali, Economic Affairs Minister stated that Malaysia’s Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad not only spoke on behalf of Malaysia but spoke on behalf of the entire world community. He added that leaders from all over the world must consider the speech of their Prime Minister at the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) session gravely if the mode or procedure to solve the global issues needs to be modified.
He added that he considers Malaysia is back on the international forum, because of a crucial role. Even after being a small nation, he thinks that under the administration of Dr Mahathir, the world will definitely listen and consider Dr Mahathir’s view passionately and positively.
Mr Azmin Ali stated that their nation is in the need of a leader who holds the boldness and confidence to holler in front of the great powers. This is where Malaysia’s PM stands. He made use of the platform not only to speak for Malaysia but also for the entire society.
He also asserted his delight to witness Dr Mahathir taking over the world on an international platform.
Mr Azmin even stated that being a Malaysian and also a member of the cabinet, he feels extremely glad to see a PM of a small nation with a small economy having the faith to express his views at the UNGA about changing the path of dealing with the world issues. He urged the leaders to take the message of Dr Mahathir in a positive light.
At the UNGA, Dr Mahathir demanded that the UN needs to be reconstructed, the state of Palestinian needs to be acknowledged, and bring an end to the industrialization of war.
