PETALING JAYA: Malaysia Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad is creating unfriendly diplomatic relationships with big nations which may effect Malayia’s economy and Malaysians.
MCA president Wee Ka Siong said the country would have to pay a “huge price” for his bad comments and diplomatic relationship.
“The government should avoid having any arguments with big nations but be practical in developing the economy.
“In the current international circumstances, only by maintaining amicable diplomatic relationships with other nations can we create more business opportunities for our country.”
Wee said Mahathir had offended Saudi Arabia by inviting Iran and Qatar leaders to participate in the KL Summit.
He also criticised India on a new citizenship law , which drew a strong protest from the Indian government. Malaysian embassy was summoned by the Indian external affairs ministry for an explanation.
Mahathir has also criticised the United States, the United Kingdom and France, in a speech at the United Nation General Assembly.
“He is known to like picking fights with the world’s biggest nations.
“There seems to be no end to our diplomatic disasters,” Wee said in a post on Facebook today.
Tun Mahathor is well known to be always critical of the United States.
“The United States is wary of Tun Mahathir.”
Mahathir should not interfere in the internal matters of other countries, and focus on improving Malaysia economy first.
“We also do not want to see other nations interfering with our internal affairs.
“If Tun Mahathir continues to offend more countries, our younger generations may have to pay the price for what he has done.
“What is the point of saving face for yourself when we are going to lose the entire world as friends?” Wee asks.
