PORT MORESBY: Rich, developed countries do not appreciate Malaysia, even when Malaysia offers help, instead they criticize Malaysia because they perceive it as a  non-democratic country, pointed out Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad today.

“If we go to big countries, we do whatever also they don’t want to say thank you.

“They (rich, developed countries) just say `Ooh you’re not for democracy, oh you’re not free’”

Dr Mahathir told this to Malaysian media after having a bilateral meeting with Papua New Guinea Prime Minister Peter O’Neill earlier today at the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (Apec) 2018 Summit at the Papua New Guinea capital.
