KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia has pointed out that Indonesia is responsible for the current haze that has enveloped a major part of Malaysia.
Energy, Science, Technology, Environment and Climate Change Minister Yeo Bee Yin (pix) said Indonesian Environment and Forestry Minister Dr Siti Nurbaya Bakar should not be in denial that Indonesia is responsible for the haze in Malaysia.
She said the data from Asean Specialised Meteorological Centre (ASMC) clearly shows that the neighbouring country is responsible for the current haze in Malaysia.
“Let the data speak for itself. Minister Siti Nurbaya should not be in denial,” she said in a statement posted on Facebook yesterday.
Yeo also included a link to the ASMC where the latest data shows that the total number of hotspots in Indonesia’s Kalimantan and Sumatera are 474 and 387, respectively, a huge contrast to the latest number of just seven hotspots in Malaysia. — Bernama
