Shafie has never acknowledged Sulu’s claim to Sabah
According to Parti Warisan (Warisan) Wira head Datuk Azis Jamman, Datuk Seri Mohd Shafie Apdal has never recognized Sulu’s claim to Sabah and in fact released a statement requesting Putrajaya to take the problem of the Philippines’ claim seriously.
He asked if Mohd Shafie acknowledged Sulu’s claim if he said Putrajaya has to undertake diplomatic negotiations with the Philippine government and demand that it withdraw the claim?
The reality is that the state administration lacks diplomatic capacity to handle matters involving two nations; this is a matter for the federal government to handle, according to a statement issued by the Sepanggar Member of Parliament on Monday.
‘Diplomatic Talks,’ Azis added, meaning Putrajaya and the Philippine Embassy had to get down and address the claim problem.
“Datuk Seri Anifah Aman used the phrase ‘discussion’ to criticize Datuk Seri Mohd Shafie.
We do not recognise ‘discussion’ in this context. This demonstrates that Anifah is prepared to go to any length to blame others, even if he isn’t conscious of it,” he concluded.
