Laying claim on oil and gas


Dateline 2018-12-04, Borneo Post:

Sarawak is merely exercising its rights over oil and gas found in the state’s waters and shores.

Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg says in this context, Sarawak is not making any demands over the matter as it involves what rightfully belongs to the state.

“It is just a matter of rights. It is not demanding. If it is your house, and you want your house to be fenced up, that is what you want.

“That is not amounting to ‘demand’. That is just (our) right. Rights can be negotiated,” he told reporters after officiating at Zamalah Wartawan Malaysia organised by Malaysian Press Institute (MPI) here yesterday.
