KUALA LUMPUR: There are clauses that allow either Malaysia or Singapore to opt out of the high-speed rail (HSR) project, said Datuk Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali.
The Economic Affairs Minister said the Attorney General's Chambers (AGC) has examined the bilateral agreement between both nations.
Azmin said according to the feedback from the AGC, the matter must be resolved based on the laws, which also involves bilateral negotiations.
"We are looking at all the available options. The bilateral agreement on the HSR provides for either party to cancel the project. This however, is subjected to the terms and conditions of the agreement.
"I must stress that any agreements inked must be fair and just to both parties," said Azmin in reply to Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi (BN-Bagan Datuk), who asked what are the aspects that are being examined after the Singapore-Kuala Lumpur HSR project was being reviewed.
Azmin also said that he will lead a delegation to Singapore soon to have a discussion on the matter and also to safeguard the diplomatic relationship between both countries.
