KUALA LUMPUR, April 27 (Bernama) — Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak is looking forward to meeting Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao.
“I am looking forward to meeting Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao. We are looking to forge stronger ties between the countries,” he said in his Twitter Wednesday.
Wen, who is on a two-day official visit, starting Wednesday, will meet Najib Thursday at Putrajaya where both leaders are scheduled to hold official talks.
Najib will also host a luncheon for Wen at Seri Perdana Thursday.
This is Wen’s second official visit to Malaysia.
The first was in December 2005 when he attended the first East Asia Summit and the ninth Asean-China Summit and Asean Plus Three Summit held in Kuala Lumpur.
This second visit is to reciprocate Najib’s 2009 visit when the Joint Action Plan on Malaysia-China Strategic Cooperation was issued.
On another matter, Najib tweeted he was looking forward to meeting his online friends in Terengganu when he visits the East Coast state on Saturday.
