"In fact, there is historical precedence, dating back to the emperors of China and the sultans of Malacca, that relationship the relationship between our two nations can be mutually beneficial," he said on Facebook on Saturday ( June 22).

Anwar recently welcomed his Chinese counterpart, Li Qiang, for an official visit on Wednesday (June 22).
