This evening, I chaired an emergency National Security Council meeting in TUDM Subang upon my arrival from Jakarta.
This meeting was also attended by YAB Deputy Prime Minister Dato’ Seri Zahid Hamidi and the Multimedia and Communications Minister Datuk Seri Salleh Said Keruak as well as senior government officials.
I was briefed in detail on the current situation. Our main focus is to ensure the safety of Malaysians who are being detained in North Korea and to ensure their safe return to Malaysia.
I know that the family and friends of our fellow Malaysians detained in North Korea are anxiously anticipating news of their loved ones.
We are doing our very best to secure their safe return.
