KOTA TINGGI: The flood relief mission here by the International Trade and Industry Ministry was carried out with permission and approval from the National Security Council (NSC), says Senior Minister Datuk Seri Azmin Ali.
He said the ministry submitted a letter to NSC regarding the post-flood mission, which also involved its agencies.
“Post-flood is a very crucial time for the government to help the victims such as in cleaning their houses and providing other assistance for them to survive.
“NSC has given the approval for the mission to carry on with strict compliance with the standard operating procedure (SOP), ” he told reporters at the Kota Tinggi Social Welfare Department’s office here yesterday.
He was asked whether the mission had obtained permission for interstate travel, which is prohibited throughout the country following the implementation of the movement control order, conditional MCO and recovery MCO.
Azmin said he frequently reminded the team to always comply with the SOP such as maintaining physical distance and wearing face masks.
Earlier, the mission, in collaboration with the Federation of Malaysian Manufacturers, handed over basic necessities to flood
victims and cleaned up several areas affected by the flood. — Bernama
