Armed Forces chief rubbishes rumours US building military base in Sabah
Armed Forces chief General Tan Sri Zulkifeli Mohd Zin said in a statement that the rumours were "untrue".
He said the Defence Ministry and the Armed Forces had no intention of allowing a foreign military base to be established in Malaysia.
An online portal last Wednesday reported that former Rural and Regional Development Minister Datuk Seri Shafie Apdal had asked in the Dewan Rakyat if it was true that Putrajaya had allowed the US to build an army base in Sabah.
He said that if the rumours were true, it would only show that Malaysia was unable to defend itself. – Bernama
