– EPA pic, June 25, 2022. AUSTRALIA’S Foreign Minister Penny Wong will visit Malaysia on Tuesday (June 28) to deepen ties and to build on the existing partnerships for the benefit of the countries and the region. The Malaysia-born minister said she is scheduled to meet her Malaysian counterpart Saifuddin Abdullah, Senior Defence Minister Hishammuddin Hussein and International Trade and Industry Senior Minister of Mohamed Azmin Ali on her visit here. Her visit is to reaffirm Australia's commitment as a strategic partner to the region and discuss economic recovery, climate action, education ties, and health security.  “I will reaffirm our commitment as Comprehensive Strategic Partners and discuss economic recovery, climate action, education ties and health security,” she said in a statement posted in the official website of Australia’s foreign minister which was made available to Bernama. The 54-year-old said she will also travel to Sabah, a region where she hails from, adding that it is a region with longstanding ties to Australia. “Otherwise, they (the parties) would not be seeking to join GRS, maybe this is what the people want, to see a strong coalition to rule Sabah in the future,” he said at a dinner with Sabah Bersatu’s Youth wing (Armada) here yesterday.

“It is the region where I am from. This will be Wong's second trip to South-east Asia since her appointment as Australia's foreign minister in May, following the Labour party’s win in the country's latest general election. Having spent my early years in Kota Kinabalu, I look forward to the great honour of returning to the city as Australia’s foreign minister,” said the University of Adelaide law and arts degree graduate. Prior to visiting Malaysia, Wong will depart to Vietnam tomorrow, where she will meet President Nguyen Xuan Phuc, Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh and Foreign Minister Bùi Thanh Sơn. “The visit, taking place ahead of next year’s 50th anniversary of diplomatic relations (between Australia and Vietnam), will focus on climate change cooperation, shared trade and investment ambitions and Australia’s continued support for Vietnam’s Covid-19 recovery,” said Wong. “Having spent my early years in Kota Kinabalu, I look forward to the great honour of returning to the city as Australia's Foreign Minister,” she added. Wong said her visit to Vietnam and Malaysia is to deepen ties and capitalise on shared economic opportunities, strengthen regional security and address issues of climate change. — Bernama Advertisement.

  She said the visit to both countries will be her second trip to Southeast Asia since becoming foreign minister one month ago, stressing that Australia’s future is tied to the future of Southeast Asia. “It’s more than geography that binds us – we have genuine links in Vietnam and Malaysia: family, business, education and tourism. Wong is the first openly-gay female politician in Australia and is seen to have played a key role in legalising same-sex marriages there in 2017. “My visit seeks to deepen these ties, building on our existing partnerships for the benefit of our countries and the region,” she added. Wong was elected as a senator for South Australia in 2001, and went on to defend her seat in 2007, 2013 and 2016. This makes Wong the fourth longest-serving senator in Australia.

She also made history as the first female to become the leader of the government in the Senate in 2013, and subsequently the leader of the opposition in the Senate after her party’s defeat in the 2013 elections. – Bernama, June 25, 2022. Related News .
