Brunei, Malaysia continue to strengthen ties, says Malaysian envoy

BANDAR SERI BEGAWAN (Borneo Bulletin/ANN): Brunei and Malaysia continue to step up efforts to further strengthen cooperation and ties, with this year seeing ministers from the two countries conducting work visits, Malaysian High Commissioner to Brunei Darussalam Datuk Raja Reza Raja Zaib Shah said.

Speaking at a luncheon hosted by the Malaysian High Commission in Brunei at the Panaga Club in Kuala Belait, to celebrate the 66th Independence Day and the 60th Malaysia Day, the high commissioner said the gathering served to establish closer relations between the high commission and Malaysians living in the Belait District.

Brunei and Malaysia established diplomatic relations in 1984.

Brunei has a high commission in Putrajaya, as well as consulate-generals in Kota Kinabalu and Kuching. Malaysia maintains a high commission in Bandar Seri Begawan.

Leaders of both countries have many times reiterated their joint commitment to strengthening relations between the two countries.

In this regard, both countries are also looking forward to the 40th anniversary of the establishment of their diplomatic relations in 2024.- Borneo Bulletin
