Najib was the only world leader that Obama gave a half-Japanese bow as a sign of respect, as the prime minister was approaching the center stage to shake hand with the US president! The body language says it all!
First and foremost on the agenda, between the two, is the straightening of the already existing strong bilateral relations between the two countries.
I was made to understand Najib never once did he denigrate anyone or any member or leader of the opposition parties in Malaysia during his meeting with Obama and he carries himself well. For that 40 minutes meeting he succeeded in telling Obama on what is really going on in Malaysia in which Obama retorted that he already knew! Phew!!
I am sure during that discussion Najib reflects that aura gentlemanly and that of a well brought up son of a prominent family whose father was the most respected second prime minister of Malaysia who brought development for the country. A well brought person never say anything bad of another person..well done Mr Prime Minister!
Najib also explain Malaysia's stance as a moderate Muslim country on our stance towards the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. I was made to understand that Najib reiterates the fact that Malaysia has never been against the Jewish people but only critical of the Zionist expansionist policy, and would like to see an amicable solution for the Palestinian issue.
In other words Malaysia would like to be friendly with as many countries and people as possible as long as these countries' and people's aspiration is in tandem with Malaysia principle of co-existence.
I was also made to understand that Barack Obama has accepted an invitation to pay a side "official" visit to Malaysia, from his thrice postponed official visit to Indonesia.
Hey, I feel good today!
