PUTRAJAYA: The government is still waiting for Lynas Corp to present its proposal on how it plans to deal with the rare earth processing waste, says Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

"We are waiting for them to tell us how they are going to do that, whether they find a place and whether they can dispose of the waste or not, " he said to reporters on Thursday (Aug 1).

According to a news report which cited an unamed government official, the Cabinet discussed the viability of Lynas building a permanent disposal facility in the country and would be announcing its decision next month ahead of the rare earth firm's licence expiry date.

However, Bentong MP Wong Tack said he doubted the veracity of the news report which claimed the government was likely to drop its requirement for Lynas Corp to remove its rare earth processing waste from Malaysia.
