KUALA LUMPUR: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak visited the giant panda pair Fu Wa and Feng Yi, at Zoo Negara here, Sunday.
Najib, who tweeted and posted on his Facebook page a picture of his visit, said giant pandas were considered to be symbols of peace in Chinese culture and were highly revered.
The two Chinese giant pandas are here for 10 years to mark the 40th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic ties between Malaysia and China on May 31.
Loaned through the Malaysia-China Giant Panda International Conservation Agreement programme, the pandas will be quarantined for about one month in a special place in Zoo Negara to enable them to adjust to the new environment.
