Obama on Human Rights: Malaysia "Has Got Some Work To Do, Just Like The United States"


PRESIDENT OBAMA: I think the prime minister is the first to acknowledge that Malaysia still has got some work to do, just like the United States, by the way, has some work to do on these issues. Human Rights Watch probably has a list of things they think we should be doing as a government. And, you know, I am going to be constantly committed to making sure that these issues get raised in a constructive way. And, you know, Prime Minister Najib Razak came in as a reformer and one who's committed to it. And, you know, I'm going to continue to encourage him as a friend and a partner to make sure that we're making progress on that front.
