SULTAN JOHOR TAK SETUJU PROJEK JAMBATAN KE 3

KUALA LUMPUR, June 18 — The Sultan of Johor has rejected the proposed third bridge linking Malaysia and Singapore, in the latest show of power by the royalty after he was apparently not even consulted by either governments on the proposal.

Prime Minister Najib Razak had said recently the government was keen on pursuing the idea of a third bridge near the eastern coast of Johor.

But the proposal has already drawn some criticism from Umno leaders who are concern Malaysia would have to lift the ban on the sale of sand to Singapore before the bridge could be built-malaysiainsider
