Yong: Government must counter the Philippines claim to Sabah

Today’s news reports in Malaysia and Philippines that the Philippines, in amending its constitution, plan to add Sabah as the “13th state of the Philippines” should not be taken lightly because such attempts by senior personalities in the Philippines confer some dangerous legitimacy on the Philippines/Sulu claim to Sabah. Such attempts (to claim Sabah) will never succeed but their continuing efforts to claim Sabah serve to embolden the subversive elements at Sabah’s border to destabilise Sabah and stiffen the resistance among illegal immigrants to ESSCOM.
