KUALA LUMPUR: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Mahathir Mohamad has expressed deep appreciation to the quality of work shown by the people concerned throughout the 13th Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) Conference. 

“The success of NAM was achieved through our disciplined work. I hope the performance shown can be further improved when the nation hosts the OIC (Organisation of Islamic Conference) Meeting,” he said at the Appreciation Dinner for some 5,000 NAM Conference staffers last night. 

The dinner was hosted personally by the Prime Minister and his wife Datin Seri Dr Siti Hasmah Mohd Ali. 

Also present at the dinner were Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, Chief  

Secretary to the Government Tan Sri Samsudin Osman, Foreign Minister Datuk Seri Syed Hamid Albar, Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Norian Mai and Army Chief General Datuk Wira Mohamed Sharom Mohamed Nordin. 

Dr Mahathir said in jest that the slogan “Malaysia Boleh” was actually proven when he received much praise including from leaders of nations who attended the conference. 

“Even if we have 'seven' meetings, we are capable of handling them,” he said jokingly to loud applause from those present.
