KUALA LUMPUR: Foreign affairs minister Saifuddin Abdullah said it was a “good discussion” at the closed-door briefing for MPs on the claim by the heirs of the Sulu sultanate.

“As far as Wisma Putra is concerned, we take note of the points raised by the MPs,” he said when met by reporters at Seri Pacific Hotel after the briefing which lasted over two hours.

The briefing was conducted by law minister Wan Junaidi Tuanku Jaafar, Saifuddin and economic affairs minister Mustapa Mohamed.

Wan Junaidi left the venue without speaking to the media.





Warisan president and Semporna MP Shafie Apdal, meanwhile, said the parliamentarians who attended the briefing still wanted the matter debated in the Dewan Rakyat.

“This is a matter of the country’s sovereignty and security.”

DAP’s Teo Nie Ching, who left the briefing earlier, said the issue was “complicated”.

When asked about the briefing, the Kulai MP said she was unable to comment due to the gag order.

However, she said that “a lot of things happened in between”, without elaborating further.





Earlier, FMT reported that members of the media had been told not to report on the closed-door briefing for MPs as it comes under the Official Secrets Act (OSA).

The briefing comes in the wake of the seizure of two Petronas subsidiaries in Azerbaijan after a French arbitration court ruled in March that Malaysia had to pay the heirs of the Sulu sultanate at least RM62.59 billion.

The seizure was part of legal efforts launched in 2017 by the heirs to receive compensation for land in Sabah they said their ancestor leased to a British trading company in 1878.
