Malaysia wants Asian oil-importing nations to forge alliance

KUALA LUMPUR -- Malaysia has called on Asian countries to cooperate in
seeking supplies of oil and gas, a news report said Saturday.

"Malaysia believes that the only viable option for Asia lies in building a
shared political commitment to cooperate in energy diplomacy," The Star
newspaper quoted Deputy Prime Minister Najib Razak as telling a group of
Malaysian and Chinese business leaders in Beijing Friday.

Najib said Malaysia and China are already cooperating through their
national oil companies by working together as active joint venture partners
in countries such as Indonesia and Sudan.

Malaysian officials were not immediately available Saturday to comment on
Najib's remarks.

Najib, who is also the defense minister, is on a six-day official visit to
China.

Earlier Friday, he witnessed the signing of a memorandum of understanding
on defense cooperation between the two countries covering military
training, exchange of personnel and information sharing. (AP)
