Prime Minister Abdullah Badawi said he has “taken note” of LKY’s explanation and wants an assurance that such statements will not be made again. The Prime Minister felt that Lee’s statement could have incited the feelings of Malaysians. He said Lee’s statement was uncalled for and not appreciated, and he did not agree that the Chinese community in Malaysia was being marginalised.
Declining to comment further, the Prime Minister did not say whether he had accepted Lee’s apology or whether he was satisfied with the reply given by the republic’s former prime minister.
