JOHOR BARU:  The Johor state government has acknowledged the contributions of the Chinese community in developing the state and urged the people not to be taken in by the extreme views of certain parties.

Mentri Besar Datuk Mohamed Khaled Nordin (pic) said that the Chinese were also citizens of this country, just like the other races including Malays and Indians.

"We need to be always united to overcome any problems.

"Without the cooperation and hard work from all races, we will not be where we are today," he said during the prize-giving ceremony for the best short film themed Saya Anak Malaysia at Southern University College here on Sunday.

He stressed that the state government would continue to assist Chinese schools in the state.
