Tuaran: The Federal-State relations issue can be resolved amicably if both parties adhere to the concept of always “assuming the best,” said Sabah Umno Deputy Chairman Datuk Seri Abdul Rahman Dahlan.

“The Federal Government must assume that if Sabah and Sarawak receive what was promised in the Malaysia Agreement 1963 (MA63) and the Malaysian Constitution, then the governments of Sabah and Sarawak will be able to develop their states more effectively.

“If Sabah and Sarawak prosper, then Malaysia will prosper,” he said at the Umno Tuaran meeting here, on Saturday.

He added that if this development and progress would mean that the poverty rate in Sabah and Sarawak could be drastically reduced, Malaysia’s overall poverty statistics would also decrease.
