Malaysia Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad aims to scrap China deals

Updated : August 13, 2018 11:38 AM IST

Malaysia's prime minister said Monday he will seek to cancel multibillion-dollar Chinese-backed infrastructure projects that were signed by his predecessor as his government works to dig itself out of debt, and he blasted Myanmar's treatment of its Rohingya minority as "grossly unjust."
Mahathir said he wants to maintain good relations with China and welcomes its investment, so long as the projects benefit Malaysia.
"We don't think we need those two projects. We don't think they are viable. So if we can, we would like to just drop the projects," he said.
