Foreign Minister Senator Bob Carr has described the recent Malaysian General Elections (GE13) as 'credible'.
In reply to Greg Sheridan, foreign editor of The Australian newspaper on Sky TV on Sunday, on the credibility of the Malaysian Government, Carr said:
"Well, they certainly are a credible government. I rang my friend, Foreign Minister (Datuk Seri) Anifah (Aman) on Friday to congratulate him and to say (that) I looked forward to working with him in Brunei at the East Asia Summit and in other forums."
He reiterated the Australian Government's intention not to be involved in Malaysia's domestic politics.
