Regional co-operation helping suppress Islamic militants: Najib

January 29, 2013

DAVOS, Switzerland – Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak said in a speech Friday (January 25th) at the Global Economic Forum that countries in Southeast Asia have managed to suppress threats posed by Islamist militants, AFP reported.

Citing co-operation between Malaysia and others – including Indonesia and the Philippines – Najib said al-Qaeda-linked groups are being tackled.

"The whole threat of militant Islam, I think it has receded quite substantially in Southeast Asia," he told politicians and business leaders from around the world. "I think most of it is behind us. I think we've dealt with radical Islam."
