KUANTAN: Kuantan MP Fuziah Salleh has responded to the open letter from Lynas CEO Amanda Lacaze by saying: the government is committed to being eco-friendly.

The review on the Lynas rare earth refinery here will be guided by a framework of sustainable development and investments, she said.

Fuziah said the Pakatan Harapan government had clearly stated in its manifesto that sustainability is an integral part of its policy.

"Promise 39 of the Pakatan Harapan manifesto under the heading 'Balancing Economic Growth with Environmental Protection' states that 'the Pakatan Harapan government promises to govern the country, based on the principles of sustainability and sustainable development.

"In short, it will be an environmentally friendly government'," said Fuziah, who is also Lynas executive review committee chairman, in a statement on Tuesday (Oct 2).

In her open letter published in The Star on Tuesday, Lacaze appealed to the government to be fair and just, and be objective and scientific in any review of Lynas Malaysia.
