Kota Kinabalu: Sabah-born new Australian Foreign Minister Penny Wong and Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Dr Jeffrey Kitingan have discussed establishing an Anzac war museum.

The issue was discussed during her courtesy call on Jeffrey today, according to a statement. 

Anzac Day is an Australian day of remembering those who died in conflicts including Australians who perished in the infamous Sandakan death march during the Japanese occupation.

Wong was also receptive to the idea of establishing a mechanism to resolve the issue of Sabahans overstaying in her country.

It is no secret that many Sabahans who travel to Australia to work in the agriculture industry in search of better wages overstay their 90-day visa.
