KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysians should always be grateful for the peace and prosperity they enjoy and never take it for granted, Yang di-Pertuan Agong Sultan Muhammad V said.

The King said he believed that the people have become wiser from studying the atrocities taking place in several other countries and in the Middle East, where armed conflict and bloodshed were the order of the day.

“As such, I call on my beloved subjects to always appreciate efforts made to safeguard peace and security in the country. Do not look at it as petty and take it lightly.

“Appreciate the struggles and sacrifices, sweat and tears of members of the security forces who sacrificed everything for the sake of ensuring our country’s peace and harmony,” he said in conjunction with his official birthday celebration yesterday.

Sultan Muhammad V said the people should be alert to negative developments, such as the emergence of terrorist groups, which he said is a serious concern around the world.

“But I am confident that with the capability of the Royal Malaysian Police and other agencies, and support and cooperation of all the people, the elimination of these elements and extremist cells is possible,” he added.

The King said he remained optimistic that the various races and ethnic groups are among Malaysia’s most valuable assets who would continue with the agenda of unity and harmonious living.

His Majesty said he prayed for the country’s economy to achieve higher growth, saying it was important that the people back the national economic agenda.

“Stop the negative actions that bring losses to our country, and the irresponsible speculation and assumptions.

“Despite having to face various challenges, I believe that with the mandate and support of the people, the Government will continue to be strong,” he added.

The King also reminded Malaysians not to be complacent to the extent that they do not aspire to improve.

“There is ample avenue for the Government and people to improve from time to time,” he added. — Bernama
