PUTRAJAYA: Malaysia has accepted the Australian government's decision to drop the plan to exchange refugees and asylum seekers that was agreed upon by both parties in July.
Home Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein said in a statement that although the plan fell through, the efforts by both governments had attracted global attention to the various issues pertaining to refugees and asylum seekers.
“We have achieved a large part of our goal when the global community started to pay attention and responded to the swap arrangement,” he said.
“Our objective is to shed light on the welfare of refugees and emphasise the importance of playing a part in curbing the negative activities that are associated with asylum-seeking,” he added.
Hishammuddin is confident that the Australian government's decision is not the end to Malaysia's efforts to find a solution for these issues.
The minister also believes the Australian government will continue to strive for the best way to achieve the goals that were defined by both governments.
To find the best way forward, Malaysia and Australia would make full use of the fourth Australia-Malaysia annual working group meeting in Sydney next month, he said.
“We cannot deny that Malaysia is a country that lies in the middle of the travel route of asylum seekers, and we will surely double our efforts to deal with this issue,” Hishammuddin added.
