KUALA LUMPUR: To protect the sovereignty and interests of Malaysia, the government has filed an application in the Court of Arbitration in Paris to cancel the final award in relation to claims by purported descendants of the Sulu sultan, says Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

The Prime Minister said the application in the French court was filed on March 3 to ensure that the award could not be enforced and Malaysia need not have to pay the sum of US$14.9bil (RM62.59bil).
