Putrajaya (Malaysia) : Malaysia is pressing for an urgent discussion with Bangladesh and Myanmar over the large number of illegal immigrants coming to Langkawi, reports Malaysian newspaper The Star.
According to Home Ministry secretary-general Datuk Alwi Ibrahim, they had found elements of human trafficking over the unprecedented massive landing of the illegals.
As a step to ensure that the incidents were not repeated, Alwi said that Malaysia would call for a discussion with Bangladesh and Myanmar.
He added that Thailand would also be involved in the matter since the cases of trafficking of migrants from Bangladesh and Myanmar were also through the Malaysia-Thailand border.
