Kuala Lumpur – The Malaysian Government on Friday refuted the allegations by the U.S. on its human rights records, saying the report was one-sided and unbalanced.
In a statement, the foreign ministry said that the U.S. 2015 country report on human rights practices concerning Malaysia was based on unsubstantiated information and relied primarily on sources whose objectivity was questionable.
“The allegations selectively reflected to impute disrepute on the Government of Malaysia and did not take into consideration its efforts to promote and protect human rights,’’ it said.
However, Malaysia considered the report as a one-sided approach by the U.S. that ignored Malaysia’s sovereign right to decide on its internal affairs. (Xinhua/NAN)
