Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak and his British counterpart Theresa May have reaffirmed the strong ties between Malaysia and the United Kingdom, which pre-dated and have continued since Malaysia’s independence 60 years ago.

In a statement issued after their meeting at the UK Prime Minister’s Office at 10, Downing Street here on Thursday, Najib said, “In addition to our shared values and history, the UK is seeking a new relationship with friends and partners around the world as it leaves the European Union (EU).

“Malaysia is well positioned to add value, strategically located at the heart of Southeast Asia, with strong links to the Muslim world and China,” he said in the statement.

Najib said as an outward-looking trading nation which the World Bank recently said was facing the future “from a position of strength”, Malaysia welcomed the opportunity to have a closer economic partnership with the UK.

“I assured Prime Minister May that Malaysia will be happy to discuss setting up a trade arrangement between our two countries as soon as possible. We know that trade between our countries will benefit our economies and our peoples,” he added.
