So, its part of the job of any leaders to find ways in fostering good understanding and cooperation between nations and governments. Nothing to shout about.
However, weeks before the scheduled visit, news from the PMO was rather alarming.
Someone claiming to be a close aide of Najib was contemplating on arranging a visit to Kuala Lumpur for Burmese democratic icon Aung San Suu Kyi.
What a rotten idea it is.
Bringing Suu Kyi to Malaysia will not augur well in cementing our ties with Myanmar since it was established in 1957. And I dont think Yangoon would like to see us interfering in its domestic affairs.
But the officer was so proud and convinced that such a move will make Malaysia 'rise on the occassion' as the one promoting democracy and stability to the region. And of course, its a boost for Najib.
What a load of craps!
My words to this young Dato - you dont know what you are doing. Its not part of your area of responsibility. If you know nothing about foreign policy and the wisdom of maintaining good diplomatic tools, better leave it to the experts.
By the way, do you know who will benefit most if Suu Kyi comes to Malaysia? The Opposition, of course! Anwar Ibrahim, who all this while claims of equating the credentials of Suu Kyi and Jose Rizal, will lucre from it.
So, just stay where you are...
