Do not question Sabah's sovereignty in Malaysia: CM
For illustrative purposes only.
KOTA KINABALU: Chief Minister Datuk Seri Hajiji Noor said the State Government strongly rejects any claim on Sabah akin to questioning the State's sovereignty in the Federation of Malaysia.

Echoing the Federal Government's firm stand not to entertain the latest claim by a group calling themselves the United Tausug Citizens (UTC), Hajiji said Sabah also has the backing of the global community on this matter.

He stressed again that Sabahans have chosen to jointly form the Malaysian Federation through the Malaysian Agreement 1963 (MA63).

"Therefore, the state government and the people will not recognise any external claims against Sabah," he said in a statement, Sunday.

He said that even the claim by the heir of the defunct Sulu Sultanate ended with the imprisonment of the arbitrator, Dr Gonzalo Stampa.

The Chief Minister said the claim by UTC or any group on Sabah is nothing but a frivolous attempt to disrupt the State's peace, and it is tantamount to threatening the sovereignty of the nation.
