Malaysia remains committed that any aircraft landings at the Seletar Airport in Singapore cannot utilise Malaysian airspace in Pasir Gudang, Johor.
Foreign Minister Datuk Saifuddin Abdullah said the matter would be stressed by the Malaysian delegation in their upcoming meeting with his Singaporan colleague, Dr. Vivian Balakrishnan, on Tuesday.
“We are consistent with our stand and will reiterate that the proposed plan to land on Seletar cannot use Malaysia’s airspace.
“It is hoped that the January 8 meeting would reach an agreement on a matter which needs to be resolved,” he said.
Saifuddin was speaking to reporters after flagging-off participants of the Ultron Kuantan New Year Ride & Run participant 2019 here today.
Last Friday, Berita Harian in a report revealed that a number of light aircrafts and planes were seen circling over Malaysian airspace before landing at the Seletar Airport following enforcement of the Instrument Landing System (ILS).
