PETALING JAYA: The government should handle diplomatic relations with China with care, says MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong.

"For the country's best interest, the government must then reorganise its Malaysia-China foreign relations strategy. It should not merely play up 'Malay supremacy' (Ketuanan Melayu) and adopt a confrontational attitude towards China," he said in a Facebook post.

Over the past few days, Dr Wee said he had participated in Chinese New Year celebrations organised by MCA Kedah State Liaison Committee, Federation of Chinese Associations Malaysia (Hua Zong), MCA Johor Baru division and MCA South Johor division.

He noted that people expressed their concerns about Malaysia-China relations.

"Everyone is worried whether the relationship between Malaysia and China will deteriorate, whether this will have an impact on small and medium enterprises and the country's international relations," he added.
