Hadi, Tiong, Richard Riot to continue as special envoys

PUTRAJAYA: Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang, Datuk Seri Tiong King Sing and Datuk Sri Richard Riot remain as Malaysia’s special envoys, says the Prime Minister’s Office.

“The first Cabinet meeting held on Sept 1 has agreed to continue with the appointment of Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang as the special envoy to the Middle East, Datuk Seri Tiong King Sing as special envoy to China and Datuk Seri Richard Riot as special envoy to East Asia,” it said on Thursday (Sept 2).
