KUANTAN: Armed Forces chief Jen Tan Sri Zulkifeli Mohd Zin said there could not be any leak of national security information into other hands.
Although there have been inter-countries exercises conducted between the Malaysian army and that of other countries, he said the country’s top secrets could not have been leaked out in any way.
“We have specific measures to determine and ensure that our secrets will not be leaked or fall into other hands,” he said after closing the Setia Padu joint exercise which involved various national security and rescue agencies in Gebeng here on Friday.
He was asked to comment on reports that the Australian High Commission office in Malaysia was said to be among those that were used by the United States as a centre of secret electronic data.
According to Australian news agency Fairfax, other such centres were in Jakarta, Bangkok, Hanoi, Beijing, Timor Leste and Papua New Guinea.
However, Jen Zulkifeli said their job of ensuring there was no leakage of national security information had become tougher due to the advent of sophisticated electronic devices and Internet communication technology.
