Secret attacks against terrorism by U.S. disapproved
AFAR
11/11/2002

[KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia] The Malaysian government has stated its disapproval for the United States to launch any airstrikes against terrorists in Malaysia.

Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, Deputy Prime Minister of Malaysia, told the media that Malaysia was "not a country that wants to allow another country to carry out operations in our country. We know when to cooperate to fight terrorism ... but not to the extent of carrying out certain operations without our knowledge."

In its own actions against terrorism, Malaysia has put more than 70 suspected rebels in detention without trial since mid-2001.
