KUALA LUMPUR, March 15 (Bernama) — Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak on Tuesday condemned in the strongest terms the bombing in Ankara, Turkey on Sunday, saying that there is a need for governments to increase their efforts in international intelligence cooperation to fight terrorism.

“Malaysia condemns in the strongest terms the bombing that took place in Ankara.

“This heinous act of terrorism has no place in our society and I agree with (Turkey’s) President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s call to redefine terrorism to include those who support such acts,” he said in his latest Facebook posting today, following a car explosion in Ankara which killed 37 people and injured at least 125 victims.

“We must stay ahead in the war against terrorism by increasing our efforts in international intelligence cooperation,” he added.
