No reason to be in Yemen


I REFER to the letter “Help bring peace to Yemen” (The Star, Aug 26) by Datuk Dr Fauziah Mohd Taib, a former colleague of mine in the Foreign Affairs Ministry.

I fully agree with Dr Fauziah that we have no business setting up another anti-terrorism centre in Malaysia at the behest of any country under whatever guise. Malaysia already has its own Southeast Asia Regional Centre for Counter Terrorism (SEARCCT). In fact, I headed a task force within Wisma Putra that worked out the terms of reference for this organisation. We even visited a suitable site for the location of the SEARCCT.
