(ECNS) -- “When we started our relations in the 1970s, it began at a very low-based or very limited interaction, but today it has become a full-blown relationship anchored on very strong foundations of mutual trust, respect, and friendship”, said Dato Abdul Majid, president of the Malaysia-China Friendship Association and former Malaysian ambassador to China, in an exclusive interview with China News Network. He listed a couple of crucial moments in the relationship, such as Malaysia’s support for China to regain its seat in the UN in 1971, the formal establishment of diplomatic relations later on, Malaysian Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim’s recent visit to China, bilateral visa waiver policies, etc. Majid expects more people-to-people exchanges and encourages cooperation in the area of technology, which, he believes, is “something that Malaysia could learn from China.” (Lin Zhuowei)
