BEIJING: The East Coast Rail Link and the projects for the construction of two gas pipelines have been cancelled, says Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

The Prime Minister said the projects could not go on due to Malaysia's financial woes.

However, details of the cancellation - including such matters as compensation - would have to be discussed later, he said.

Dr Mahathir said this at a press conference before ending his five-day visit to China on Tuesday (Aug 21).

"China understands our problem and agreed," he said.
