KANGAR: Malaysia's success as a progressive Islamic nation can be used to form a bridge to bring together the Western and Islamic world for joint dialogues so that they can better understand each other. 

Malaysia’s unique multicultural set-up and its competent handling of a multiracial society makes it the most suitable nominee for such a task, said Umno vice-president Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak. 

Speaking after opening a seminar on the “Thoughts of Datuk Seri Dr Mahathir Mohamad” which was part of the Perlis Umno convention programme here, Najib said the country has earned the respect of many nations. 

Malaysia could act as the link between the two worlds as its global standing is enhanced by its chairmanship of the Non-Aligned Movement and Organisation of Islamic Conference, he added. 

Najib said global events and globalisation saw the world facing a semblance of a clash of civilisations and failure to moderate the differences can have far-reaching consequences.
