KUALA LUMPUR: The Yang di-Pertuan Besar of Negri Sembilan Tuanku Muhriz Ibni Almarhum Tuanku Munawir chaired the 260th meeting of the Conference of Rulers at the Istana Negara.

Before the meeting started at 11am yesterday, Tuanku Muhriz took the salute at a Grand Guard of Honour mounted by the First Battalion of the Royal Malay Regiment at the Palace’s Main Square.

Tuanku Muhriz later planted a tree at the compound of the Istana Negara to symbolise his chairing of the meeting.

Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah also graced the tree-planting ceremony.

The Grand Guard of Honour and the tree-planting ceremony were mooted by Sultan Abdullah and had never been held prior to His Majesty’s appointment as the 16th Yang di-Pertuan Agong.
