When the world leaders were busy politicking and/or taking side over the shooting down of MH17, our PM YAB Datuk Seri Najib bin Tun Razak was quietly and relentlessly negotiating behind the scene with the separatist group in Ukraine to secure the release of the remains of the passengers, crew and two black boxes of MH17. Congratulation to Mr Prime Minister Najib, you have made the nation proud you. You have shown your leadership during crisis.
Under normal circumstances, the “popular” or easiest way out for any PM was to go along with the power that be by condemning another nation on the shooting down of MH17 but our PM did not embark on such irresponsible act.
When the news of MH17 was shot down broke out, YAB PM immediately attend a briefing in the wee hours of the morning. He remained calm and held several press conferences to keep the families of the victims and the world informed of the matters in connection with MH17 without jumping into the conclusion to accuse others for shooting down MH17 and/or condemn any sovereign state. The PM kept all his statements factual. He was calling for an in-depth investigation into the tragedy of MH17, which was the most appropriate stand to take.
Mr PM, Sir, you have made Malaysia feel proud of you. We stand by you during this difficult time.
Our thoughts are with the families of the passengers and crew of MH17.
