PUTRAJAYA – Foreign ministers from Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand held talks in Kuala Lumpur on Wednesday on human trafficking.
The focus of the meeting was on “the issue of irregular movement of people, in particular human trafficking,” Bernama news agency reported.
The talks involved Malaysia’s Foreign Minister Datuk Seri Anifah Aman and his Thailand counterpart General Tanasak Patimapragorn, who is also Thai Deputy Prime Minister, and Indonesia’s Retno Marsudi.
Wednesday’s meeting came amid a human trafficking crisis in South-east Asia. Nearly 3,000 Rohingya Muslims from Myanmar and Bangladeshi migrants have made it ashore in Indonesia, Thailand and Malaysia in recent days after being abandoned by smugglers in open waters.
