KUALA LUMPUR – A special conference with the Malay Rulers will be held at Istana Negara on 16 June.
The Comptroller of the Royal Household, Datuk Indera Ahmad Fadil Shamsuddin said, Yang di-Pertuan Agong, Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah has stated his intention to hold the discussion.
“The special conference with the Malay Rulers is at the initiative of Seri Paduka Baginda and it will be chaired by His Majesty,” he said in a statement today.
