President uses two citizens as examples of the special friendship between Malaysia and China
CHINA President Xi Jinping singled out two Malaysians in his speeches during his official visit to Malaysia last week.
At a luncheon attended by Chinese associations and entrepreneurs, Xi made reference to acclaimed Malaysian singer Fish Leong, adding that some Chinese nationals thought she was from China.
In response, Leong expressed her gratitude on Weibo (Chinese Twitter), Thank you national leader Mr Xi for your compliment and recognition. I will continue to sing more good songs for everyone.
Another Malaysian highlighted by Xi was Dr Yong June Kong, who made headlines in China last year for being the first foreign stem cell donor.
