(Bernama) – Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak has told the Energy, Green Technology and Water Ministry to do whatever necessary to resolve the water issue with the Selangor government.

Minister Datuk Seri Dr Maximus Ongkili said they would also continue to engage with the state government to resume talks.

“We have already received a mandate from the PM to do whatever necessary and continue to proceed with the matter.

“We are scheduled to have a meeting at the officer level within this week. We are still waiting for feedback,” he said.

Ongkili was speaking to reporters after launching the second International Water Association (IWA) Malaysia Young Water Professionals Conference 2015 here Tuesday.

However, the Ministry on Tuesday was reported as saying that implementation of water restructuring in Selangor had been postponed as the state government refused to settle three out of eight conditions of the main agreement with the Federal Government, including the land issue.
