Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak on Tuesday said his country would cooperate with U.S. and other international authorities investigating the misappropriation of funds from a Malaysian state-owned fund that he founded.
“We are equally concerned about good governance in Malaysia and the rule of law,” Najib told reporters after a meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, when asked about the international investigations.
“So within the bounds of good governance and the rule of law, Malaysia will do its best to cooperate and to do whatever is necessary.”
Najib said he opposed calling early elections before the 2018 deadline, saying such a decision should not be based on “any single factor”.
