PETALING JAYA: Malaysia will lobby for support from other International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) member nations to be re-elected to its council for the sixth consecutive term since 2007, says Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong.

The Transport Minister said he had been briefed on the preparations by his ministry and the Civil Aviation Authority of Malaysia (CAAM) on this.

“We will be having bilateral meetings on the sidelines throughout the general assembly to lobby for support,” said Dr Wee, who is currently in Montreal, Canada, for the ICAO general assembly.

The general assembly is starting today until to Oct 7.

In a Facebook post yesterday, Dr Wee said he was greeted by Malaysia’s High Commissioner to Canada Anizan Siti Hajjar Adnin, CAAM chairman Tan Sri Mohd Khairul Adib Abd Rahman, CAAM chief executive officer Datuk Captain Chester Voo and Transport Ministry Aviation Division undersecretary Mohamad Radzuan Mazlan upon his arrival.
