Led the Malaysian delegation this morning for a meeting with PM of Australia Malcolm Turnbull .
This is the 60th year since we established diplomatic relations with Australia and over the years, our relationship had strengthened in areas including defense, education and others.
Today, I am happy to announce that we agreed to elevate our relationship to a strategic partnership.
I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Australia for leading the multinational search for the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 in the Indian Ocean since last year and together we thank China for the recent pledge to contribute A$20 mil for this search.
Malaysia looks forward to deepening cooperation and strengthening the partnership with Australia for many years to come.
