Sarawak’s right to repossess petroleum resources

Dateline 2016-11-16, FMT:

By Suarah Petroleum Group

Sarawak came together with Sabah, Singapore, and Malaya, supposedly partners of equal status, to form Malaysia pursuant to the Malaysia Agreement 1963 (MA63), with its territory, including its own continental shelf and all attached resources, intact.

The assurances of this fact and intent in the new federation were stated clearly by the new prime minister himself (fig.1), to allay any doubt as to the nature of the union between the parties concerned: “…When the Borneo territories become of Malaysia, they will cease to be a colony of Britain, and they will not be a colony of Malaya – I thought I made it clear – they will be partners of equal status.”
