This is the Bernama report below. Rais has made a numpty statement as a Foreign Minister and I hope it is the last. From the years 1949 to 1979, a rough estimate puts the number of Tibetans killed under Chinese occupation as 1.2 million. I think in a case like this Malaysia should have never made a statement at all. So killing is not political, what is this then. Ethnic cleansing to improve the stock of the Tibetan people, I don’t know.

Malaysia Believes Beijing Olympics Should Not Be Politicised

KUALA LUMPUR, March 29 (Bernama) — Malaysia believes the Beijing Olympics should not be politicised and remains confident it will be successfully held in August.
Foreign Minister Datuk Seri Dr Rais Yatim said Malaysia was also pleased to note that the Chinese government was able to maintain stability and protect the lives of innocent people in Tibet.
“We are relieved to learn that the situation there is returning back to normal,” he said in a statement here Saturday.
The Tibetan protesters, mostly monks and nuns, began their march early this month on the anniversary of a failed uprising against Chinese rule in Tibet in 1959, which led to the exile of the Dalai Lama, the Tibetan Buddhist leader.
The march is one of several international protests related to Chinese rule in Tibet that are under way before the Summer Olympics in Beijing in August.
Rais said the country believed the Chinese government would undertake action which was in the best interest of its people to ensure safety, security and territorial integrity.
“We also welcome the offer by the Chinese government to talk with the Dalai Lama,” he said.
