Speaking to the reporters before entering the Dang Wangi police headquarters, he said a bipartisan cooperation could be achieved to find a middle ground and direction for national defence.

"This is so that even if there is a change of government, when it comes to military spending it could be done fairly and efficiently.

"The planning must involve all parties and cannot be short-term as it involves billions of ringgit," he said, adding that a royal commission of inquiry and prosecutions were necessary in connection with the issue.
