KUALA LUMPUR — The prime minister said the government’s decision to buy new Boeing aircraft for Malaysia Airlines (MAS) was  also twisted by the Opposition although it is an investment to make MAS a renowned airline.

“That’s why I said we want to buy aircraft. MAS chose to buy the most sophisticated plane, eight Dreamliners. Yesterday I read online that Turkish Airlines bought 40 Dreamliners. This aircraft will be good to advance our aviation industry.”

On another note, Najib said the government appreciate the role of  female media practitioners in national development as they play an important role to give a clear understanding of government policies.
