KUALA LUMPUR: All politicians have a national duty to support efforts to resolve the issue of the MH17 incident, says MCA deputy president and Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Dr Wee Ka Siong.
“We appreciate the gesture from the Opposition, who are supporting the Government’s motion on the matter,” he said.
“Some Malaysians are quick to point the finger at others and in blaming the Government. We should be united in our most difficult and trying times,” he added.
Dr Wee defended the flight path taken by MH17, saying that it was an approved route by the International Civil Aviation Organisation, which was also used by other Asia-Pacific flights.
Dr Wee said all international protocols were respected by the pilots and there was no distress call issued prior to the incident.
Women, Family and Community Development Deputy Minister Datin Paduka Chew Mei Fun said it has been a difficult time for all Malaysians and Malaysia Airlines.
“We hope the employees of Malaysia Airlines will stand strong and continue their good service to the country,” she added.
Communication and Multimedia Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Shabery Cheek said the social media was full of various theories on the incident, adding that some of these comments can be hurtful to the families of MH17’s crew and passengers.
MIC president Datuk Seri G. Palanivel (BN-Cameron Highlands) said everyone must respect the agreement made between Malaysia and the relevant parties in bringing back the black box and the victims’ remains to Malaysia.
Datuk Seri Richard Riot Jaem (BN- Serian) praised Najib’s strong leadership in his diplomatic efforts to broker a deal with the pro-Russian separatists.
