KUCHING, Dec 9: Sarawak looks forward to seeing all claims related to the Malaysia Agreement 1963 (MA63) being resolved in a month as the returns of rights and power to Sarawak will have huge implications, especially for fair and just treatment and more development funds to progress and move forward.

Political pundit Dato Peter Minos believes that all this could only happen when the Federal government under Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim respects a united Sarawak under Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) and the leadership of Premier of Sarawak Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Abang Johari Tun Openg with a clear and firm vision and direction for Sarawak.

“At long last, Sarawak can now feel that the Federal government is keeping its words and is finally treating Sarawak fairly and justly,” he said in a statement today in welcoming Deputy Prime Minister Dato Sri Fadillah Yusof’s commitment to making every effort to resolve the MA63 matters.

Minos, who is also Kota Samarahan Municipal Council (MPKS) chairman, emphasised that there will be huge implications in not only strengthening the relationship and understanding between Sarawak and the Federal government and Peninsula Malaysia but for Sarawak’s bright future.

“MA63 was the agreement signed and sealed between Sarawak, Sabah, and Malaya. Without MA63, Malaysia would not have been established.

“Under MA63, it was agreed that special terms and powers were given to Sarawak and Sabah, without which Sarawak and Sabah would not have agreed to team up with Malaya to form Malaysia.

“That’s how fundamentally important MA63 is to Sarawak, Sabah and Malaysia,” he reminded.

While expressing deep appreciation for Anwar’s commitment to expediting MA63 implementation, Minos said Sarawak’s future is promising and bright when all the powers under MA63 are returned. — DayakDaily
