PETALING JAYA: The European Union (EU) ambassador to Malaysia today claimed she had been misquoted by an Umno portal.

It was reported that the EU ambassador, Maria Castillo Fernandez, had made a statement that the EU hoped Umno would stay strong and continue heading the current ruling government coalition, Barisan Nasional, to ensure Malaysia’s stability as a country.

She was reported to have said this when meeting Umno secretary-general Tengku Adnan Mansor during her official visit to the Umno headquarters at Menara Datuk Onn on Monday.

The comments were carried in a recent article on Umno Online titled “Kesatuan Eropah Harap UMNO Terus Kukuh Untuk Terus Terajui Negara” (“European Union hopes Umno will continue to be strong to lead the country”).

Fernandez, through the EU media office here, said she will not take any action that could escalate the matter into any serious issue.

The office said they would handle this matter delicately and take appropriate action to rectify the matter.

“We did not state our support for Umno as per the published writing.

“We, however, said that Malaysia needs to be politically stable and Umno has played the role

KUALA LUMPUR, 14 Ogos – Kesatuan Eropah berharap UMNO akan terus kukuh agar dapat terus menjadi tunjang dan teraju Barisan Nasional (BN) bagi memastikan Malaysia dapat terus stabil, kata dutanya, H.E Maria Castillo Fernandez hari ini.

Ujarnya, kestabilan Malaysia memberi sumbangan yang sangat besar kepada Kesatuan Eropah lantaran banyak hubungan ekonomi dan sosial berlangsung membabitkan mereka.

“Malaysia menjadi pintu masuk utama kepada negara-negara Kesatuan Eropah untuk menjalinkan hubungan dengan negara Asean malahan banyak komitmen Malaysia dalam penyepaduan Asean yang menjadi asas kepada dasar Kesatuan Eropah terhadap Asia Tenggara, di sini.”

Beliau berkata demikian dalam kunjungan hormatnya kepada Setiausaha Agung UMNO, Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor di Ibu Pejabat UMNO, Menara Dato’ Onn hari ini.
