Question: Did the subject of Anwar Ibrahim come up in the discussions between Assistant Secretary Campbell and the Secretary General for the Malaysian Ministry of Foreign Affairs today? Was the case discussed, do we have concerns about Mr. Anwar, and how were these topics addressed during the meeting?

Answer: U.S. senior officials have repeatedly raised our concerns about the Anwar Ibrahim case with Malaysian officials, including as recently as last week. Because this issue was recently discussed at length, it was not raised again at this Senior Officials Dialogue.
