NAJIB'S REPUTATION GIVES MALAYSIA AN AMERICAN BOOST!‏


International Men Of Substance.

The top brass discussing bilateral cooperation between Malaysia and America.

On his first official day at work in Washington attending the Nuclear Security Summit attended by top leaders from 47 countries, Prime Minister Najib Razak was indeed a very busy bee.

Firstly, Najib with his small entourage comprising Rais Yatim as acting Foreign Minister and Ambassador Jamaluddin Jarjis attended bilateral talks with President Barrack Obama who viewed Malaysia as an important ally in the overall agenda of Muslim communities around the world, being a Nation with a Muslim majority. Later, Najib and a very few select leaders were invited to lunch with Vice President Joseph Biden. In the evening, he was invited to join another select group of important leaders to dine with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton who might be visiting Malaysia in the very near future. According to Ambassador Jarjis, " Malaysia is regarded as representing the voices of the Islamic countries on nuclear issues."

Today, besides Prime Minister Najib, Obama gave an audience to King Abdullah of Jordan, the Presidents of Armania, and finally China.


Among the forty seven leaders here in Washington who've sought meetings on bilateral ties with the United States, only eight had their requests granted among which only two were from East Asia, namely China and Malaysia.


On Tuesday night, the Prime Minister will be hosting a Gala dinner introducing the Faces of 1Malaysia to the American community including the US Congressmen.


On Wednesday, Najib will be lunching with the Chairman of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, Congressman Howard Berman before making a keynote address on a function organised by the Centre of Strategic & International Studies ( CSIS ) on Malaysia's handling of the Insurgency Period resulting in the surrender of the Communist Party of Malaya.



The Patriot would like to commend Malaysia's Ambassador to The United States, Datuk Sri Jamaluddin Jarjis for successfully using his strong connections and diplomatic skills on Capitol Hill, arranging such important meetings and events for the Prime Minister and boosting Malaysia's standing and image in America and among the Muslim world in less than 7 months after taking over as Head of our Mission in Washington which is by far an endeavour that has never been achieved in such a short time by any of his predecessors before.






On Thursday night, H.E. Ambassador Jarjis also witnessed a signing ceremony between the National Aerospace & Defense Industries Sdn Bhd and Poongsan from South Korea supplying Ammunition & Explosives at the Ritz Carlton in Washington.

Kudos on this one, really, really good first hand accounts of what’s going on now in Washington D.C. I am MOST IMPRESSED by your insight and prediction about this JJ guy in your May 2009 post. You’re right: Ambassador Jarjis’ work is a beacon. He understands the importance of urgency. In today’s environment, no one can afford to drift along with the 'status quo, slower pace-business-as-usual'. JJ took only 7 months, and you my man – provide real-time original observation. Well done!

Salam Anonymous 2.22

Maaf terlambat menjawab leteran Saudara/i. Tulisan yang saya berikan dari Washington kali ini sememangnya merupakan laporan tidak ubah melainkan ianya kurang kualitinya dari journalist professional yang sedia ada dari NST, Star, Utusan dan lain2. Beritanya mungkin sama dengan pengeluar berita lain namun tulisannya berbeza tanpa cut and paste sebagaimana tuduhan melulu Saudara/i itu kerana saya berada ketika sidang akhbar sedang diadakan dengan pihak Duta Besar JJ. Namun demikian takkanlah kerana hendak memuaskan anda, terpaksa saya mengada-adakan cerita seperti PM dipimpin masuk kebilik rundingan dua hala dengan Obama oleh Stevie Wonder atau Angelina Jolie sedangkan ianya tidak berlaku. Baguslah jika saya memuaskan hati yang tidak sempat merujuk ke webcast dengan berita yang lebih kurang sama berlaku itu. Kerana mereka tidak menganggur dan ada masa untuk melihat webcastlah menyebabkan mereka membaca blog saya untuk berita yang sama. Mereka membaca untuk medapatkan cerita atau berita, bukannya untuk mengkritik dan meleter macam anak dara tua yang dah tak laku. Walaubagaimanapun, suka saya melihat webcast ajaib anda yang boleh menyiarkan berita yang saya laporkan yang belum pun di keluarkan di mana2 suratkhabar iaitu memorandum kesefahaman diantara syarikat Malaysia dan Korea mengeluarkan peluru yang disaksikan JJ.

Terima kasih kerana sudi mengunjung blog saya ini dan sekira ianya memudharatkan pemikiran anda, silalah baca blog penulis2 yang lebih hebat iaitu A Kadir Jasin, Ahiruddin Atan, Fauziah Ismail dan juga Nuraina Samad untuk mendapat lebih kepuasan dan kualiti.

Saya disini pula menerima pembaca dari segala lapisan pemikiran dan kebijaksanaan, iaitu dari pihak atasan dan bawahan, mahupun yang jenis pariah dengan pintu yang terbuka.

Wasallam.
