Malaysia seeks increased links with Germany.


The Malaysian Transport Minister Ling Liong Sik has apparently enlisted the help of Dr Otto Weisheu, the minister for economic affairs, transport and technology of Bavaria, Germany in an effort to boost passenger services between the two countries.

Dr Weisheu is currently visiting Malaysia and Ling stated that he had asked the German minister to lobby the German government about reaching a more liberal aviation agreement with Malaysia.

Ling also stated that he hoped Weisheu would be able to persuade Lufthansa, a German carrier, to recommence passenger services to Malaysia, The Associated Press reported.
