Malaysia has always wanted to create a long-term plan to tackle the haze, but it will require cooperation from other countries, says Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

The Prime Minister said that after witnessing a boat race between Universiti Putra Malaysia and Universiti Malaya on Sunday (Sept 15).

Dr Mahathir also said he hasn’t written to Indonesian president Joko Widodo about the haze, adding that the government needs to verify the cause of the haze before doing so.
