SERI KEMBANGAN: The Government remains committed to the 1Malaysia philosophy and will ensure "every citizen has a place under the Malaysian sun", says Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.

Najib vowed that the Government would ensure that the 1Malaysia concept was fully accepted and carried out.

"To ensure our national unity is sustainable, we need to uphold our Federal Constitution and steadfastly commit ourselves to the Rukun Negara.

"As a nation, we need to come together and reconcile our differences for the sake of the future of Malaysia," he urged in a message at the National Unity Forum themed  "Strengthening the Voices of Moderates, Moving Forward Together" at a hotel here on Thursday.

The forum was organised by the Asian Strategy and Leadership Institute (Asli), as well as Centre for Public Policy Studies, with The Star as the media partner.

Najib said Malaysians must continue to celebrate the country’s diversity for the sake of the future of the nation.

"The silent majority of moderate Malaysians must stand up to speak up for the voices of moderates to be loudly heard.

"In celebrating our Merdeka Day and Malaysia Day, let us come together as one nation - 1Malaysia," he said.

He also lauded the initiative by Asli with support of The Star for organising the event as the country marked its 57th Merdeka.

"I congratulate Asli for this commitment to national unity as part of its contribution to creating a better society, " Najib said.

He said national unity was imperative for the nation to achieve peace, prosperity and stability, which contributed to the remarkable progress the country has made.
