Description:

Beijing has always viewed Kuala Lumpur as a special friend given the long relationship the two countries have shared. For Malaysia and China, the focus should be on the convergence of interests. MALAYSIA has been very quiet on issues relating to the South China Sea (SCS) – Kuala Lumpur and several Asean nations, as well as China, have laid overlapping claims on it – but analysts opine Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak is unlikely to change his pro-China stance anytime soon.
