KUCHING - The five federal ministers from Sarawak will meet Sarawak Premier Tan Sri Abang Johari Tun Openg to seek his input on matters they will be focusing on regarding Sarawak.

Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Fadillah Yusof said the meeting scheduled for later today would also enable the newly appointed ministers to get an update on the latest developments in Sarawak.

Fadillah, who has been entrusted with focusing on Sabah and Sarawak affairs, will discuss issues concerning the Malaysia Agreement 1963 (MA63) with Abang Johari.

He said he had asked Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department (Sabah and Sarawak Affairs) Datuk Armizan Mohd Ali to get input from the Sabah government on the same matter.

"We will try to resolve quickly any arising matters (on MA63) which can be settled in a month,” he told reporters at the Kuching International Airport here today.

"There may be several matters which may need parliamentary approval, and we will bring them to the Dewan Rakyat,” he said.

The other four federal Cabinet members from Sarawak are Works Minister Datuk Seri Alexander Nanta Linggi, Datuk Seri Tiong King Sing (Tourism, Arts and Culture), Datuk Seri Nancy Shukri (Women, Family and Community Development) and Datuk Aaron Ago Dagang (National Unity).

On Dec 5, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim said Fadillah had been entrusted with focusing on Sabah and Sarawak affairs, especially the MA63.
