Deputy Foreign Minister Datuk Seri Reezal Merican Naina Merican told the Dewan Negara today that as a result of Malaysia's prudent diplomatic approach, there was no need for a third party to intervene in the issue.

He said Malaysia opted to undertake direct negotiations because it was confident that the crisis could be resolved amicably.

"In Jong-nam's case, we did not see a need to use a mediator". However, I wish to inform, because of our pragmatic attitude, many countries including from Asean helped in the matter.

"The embassies of Pakistan and the European Union were also helpful".
