BANDAR SERI BEGAWAN: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak arrived here last night for a two-day working visit in conjunction with the 64th birthday celebration of Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah.

Najib, who was accompanied by his wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor, was welcomed by Brunei’s Development Minister Dato Seri Setia Awang Suyol Awang Osman on arrival in a special aircraft from Kuala Lumpur at the Brunei International Airport here.

Also in the delegation is Home Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein.

Najib will be conferred the Darjah Kerabat Laila Utama Yang Dihormati today, which carries the title Dato Laila Utama, by Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah, who is also Brunei’s head of state.

The award is only bestowed by the Brunei Sultan on royalty or heads of government based on close relations such as between Brunei and Malaysia.

The investiture ceremony will be held at Istana Nurul Iman here, where Najib will also attend a lunch banquet before leaving for Kota Kinabalu. — Bernama
