Sabah will follow Sarawak in pursuing its rights, particularly where oil and gas are concerned.
Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Seri Jeffrey Kitingan congratulated Sarawak for reclaiming its rights, adding that the Sabah government would ensure the same for the state.
He was referring to the Sarawak government signing a commercial agreement with Petroliam Nasional Bhd (Petronas) on Monday which allows the state, through its subsidiary Petroleum Sarawak Bhd (Petros), to play a bigger role in the oil and gas industry through cooperation with Petronas.
“Kudos to the Sarawak government for reclaiming their rights. It is no secret that the Sarawak government had been doing all the heavy lifting in this fight and we are grateful for their efforts.
