Consult Johor first. In a letter today to Rais Yatim, the Foreign Minister, Tengku Razaleigh states why the Pulau Batu Putih's arbitration proceedings are still INCOMPLETE. And demands that PM Abdullah Badawi and his Cabinet do not pursue with Singapore any matter regarding Pulau Batu Putih or Pedra Branca without including Johor in the proceedings. For the State, he says, "retains territorial jurisdiction on some matters, including its territorial seas".
Ku Li warns of serious repercussions "if the present conduct continues".
