MALACCA: The visit of a high-ranking official of China’s Communist Party shows that its government is not angry at Malaysia over the MH370 incident, said Chief Minister Datuk Seri Haron Idris.
Haron, who received a courtesy call from the party secretary of Guangdong province Hu Chunhua and his entourage at his official residence in Seri Bendahara here, said the Chinese understood Malaysia’s determination in locating the missing aircraft.
“We witnessed a highly influential leader renewing the bilateral ties that the state has fostered with China some 600 years ago. Our bond of six centuries just cannot be ruptured over an unexpected tragedy.
“Our bilateral ties continue to grow stronger,” he said after the visit yesterday.
The visit, said Haron, was the 10th courtesy call made by Chinese delegates since he assumed the post of the state’s Chief Minister last year and the fourth since the plane went missing.
Hu, a key figure within the Chinese government, is also a member of the 18th Politburo of the Communist Party and considered by many analysts to be one of the top leaders to watch.
Haron said the state government anticipated a positive outcome in terms of investment to Malacca as a result of Hu’s visit.
“We spoke at length on government-to-government relationship and touched on tourism prospects,” he added.
Hu, said Haron, had also shown an interest in plans to make Guangzhou, a city in Guangdong, the twin city of Malacca.
