Najib visited to US to promote himself or to invest?


KUALA LUMPUR, OCT 24: Pakatan Harapan questioned the statement made by Minister of International Trade and Industry, Datuk Seri Mustapa Mohamed who said that Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak’s visit to United States (US) was merely to ‘enhance his profile’ and ‘no investment deal was finalised’.

Kuala Terengganu Member of Parliament, Raja Kamarul Bahrin Shah Raja Ahmad said the statement was shocking and contradictory because based on previous media reports, it was said that the Malaysia’s visit was to help US’s economy.

“Mustapa said that no deal was signed during the Malaysian delegation’s vist to US, led by Najib, recently.

“I saw and heard the video myself where Najib said Malaysia wish to help US’s economy including investing over USD4 billion through the Employee Provident Fund (EPF) and Khazanah Nasional as well as tens of billions to purchase Boeing aircrafts.

“The question now is it the country’s profile or is it Najib’s profile, which is now badly deteriorating, that was being enhanced?” he asked.

During a media session at the Parliament Media Centre, Raja Kamarul said ‘no deals signed’ is not surprising as he claimed that Donald Trump and the US were most probably suspicious of the financial source.

“Who can trust and dare to receive money from MO1 who is being investigated in US and in seven other countries in the world?

“US would not want to be smeared with the biggest financial scandal in the world today,” he said.
