PETALING JAYA: Malaysia and Thailand have agreed to reciprocate over each other’s candidature in the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) 2022-23, says Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong.

The Transport Minister said the understanding was reached when he met Thai Ambassador to the United Kingdom Pisanu Suvanajata at a dinner reception held at the Royal Thai Embassy in London on Tuesday.

“Being staunch partners in Asean, Malaysia and Thailand have reached an understanding of the candidature.

“I also offered my congratulations to Philippine Ambassador to the United Kingdom Antonio Manuel Lagdameo on his election as president of the 32nd session of the IMO Assembly,” Dr Wee said in a Facebook post yesterday.

Dr Wee also said he had attended a dinner reception hosted by Pisanu in conjunction with Thailand’s National Day and the kingdom’s candidature to the IMO Council.
