Malaysia’s former prime minister Mahathir Mohamad has admitted that his country’s ties with India strained due to his remarks on Kashmir, but said other than that the relationship between the two countries was very good, under his leadership. Mahathir, who was once world’s longest serving elected leader and now eyeing to make a comeback, said he has been making comments about affairs from all over the world.
“Well, it did because of my remarks on Kashmir. But, other than that the relationship was very good, even under my leadership,” Mahathir was quoted as saying by the WION news channel. He was asked whether the India-Malaysia relationship deteriorated during his tenure as prime minister.
