Royal Malaysian Navy (RMN) First Admiral Amzah Sulaiman said the US and Australian navies had established submarine forces, thus having the experience and resources to assist the nation's submarine force, which was still in its infancy.

"We'll be relying on allies for rescue and salvage operations and the nearest one I can think of is the Royal Australian Navy, as we have long-standing experience with them in rescue work," he told reporters on the deck of the USS Frank Cable which was docked at Westport here, Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Royal Australian Navy submarine group commander Commodore Richard Shalders said high-end rescue systems were expensive and there was no necessity to purchase them.

"You can just set up a rescue platform and other people's system can be used to help you," he said.

He said Malaysia could benefit from the Pacific Reach Exercise to be held in November 2007, where some 12 nations would send their submarines and rescue ships to test the waters off Western Australia.

"It's a very open community where you have free access to other countries' abilities and capabilities, and all information are shared so that we can assist your submarines or anyone else's in case of an accident," he added.
I wonder what Dr MAHATIR thinks of this proposal? I reckon he'd probably prefer to see the Sub on the bottom of the Ocean than accept any help from us...

Yep that's him, the former Prime Minister of Malaysia and the one who spoke openly of his hatred for Australia and United States WHEN he was PM...

I agree, though it will be interesting to see what some of the Malaysians who visit this site say about him, if anything. Hopefully he's not representative of most of his Country...

Wasn't he also in charge when the locally built MEKO project was set up ? His most enduring legacy will remain building everything locally (from Proton cars to semiconductors) whatever the cost
I don't have anything against mild nationalism or a moderate level of import substitution, but by the mid-90s there was no "mild" or "moderate" in his policies anymore !

cheers

Considering a couple of weeks ago his own party refused to make him an official delegate to their summit I think it would be safe to assume he's on the outer these days.

I think a lot of malaysians admired him for what he have done in integrating and thrusting a well industrialized Malaysia.but you can't have supporters without haters for his outspoken and sarcastic remarks has been his trademark all along.his opinions on OZ and particularly US surely based on their foreign policies and specifically to OZ on how they treat their neighbours.sometimes we not disagree some of their actions,feeling that OZ has really taken that deputy sheriff post.that's all.but in case of emergency i don't think he's that cold-hearted to leave his countrymen died in vain.we had problems with singapore as well but nothing serious happened on their relationship.

And yet at a military to military level Australia and Malaysia (as well as Singapore) get along like a "house on fire". There is a large scale FPDA exercise on right now with RAAF, F-111, F/A-18, AP-3C and B-707 operating out of Butterworth and RAN frigates and patrol boats operating out of Changi...

Makes sense doesn't it? The military ties outliving the vulgarities of different politicians, leaders and their administrations, transcending politics. I think at the military to military level between Malaysia and Australia really reflects the long term relationship irrespective of whoever is elected in both countries. It historically has been a positive relationship. The Aussies having provided assitance during the Malayan "Emergency" and "Confrontasi" period.

that was a political talk digger. every politician need their boogeyman. bush have his osama and al qaeda, ahmanidejad have his bush and during that times howard was mahathir's boogeyman.
dont worry about mahathir now, our new prime minister style is lot more different than mahathir.
