Claim of pro-Israel firm owning MAHB shares just to incite hatred, says PM

ASTANA (Kazakhstan): Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim says claims that 25% of the remaining shares of Malaysia Airports Holdings Berhad (MAHB) would be owned by a pro-Zionist company are baseless.

He said the allegations raised by the Opposition were merely aimed at inciting hatred towards the government.

"There is nothing positive from them, only inciting hatred and envy," he told a press conference on the last day of his two-day official visit to Kazakhstan here on Friday (May 17).

"All our statements that have been recognised by the world, including the meeting with Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh, do not bring anything positive to them.

"(So) what is sought is slander and incitement.

"The strengthening of the ringgit and stock market only hurts... the Opposition," he added. – Bernama
