Heads of missions in Malaysia will be given a special briefing by the Home Ministry following concerns over security threats in the country.
Deputy Prime Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, who is also Home Minister, will kick off the session Tuesday morning.
Inspector-General of Police Khalid Abu Bakar is then expected to give a briefing on the current security situation in the country behind closed doors.
A dialogue session will be held after, which is expected to be chaired by Ahmad Zahid, said a ministry official.
Last week, Deputy Home Minister Nur Jazlan Mohamed told reporters that the briefing was to give the foreign missions an “assurance” that the situation in Malaysia was “under control”.
“There is no need to worry as we are taking all the necessary safety precautions,” he said.
This is the not the first time the Home Ministry has given a security briefing to foreign missions.
The last one was held in April and chaired by Nur Jazlan, who briefed 221 representatives from 90 embassies on the latest security situation and measures taken by the Government to tackle terrorist threats.
During that session, Nur Jazlan also told the Australian and British governments to withdraw their travel advisories, claiming the security situation depicted in the advisories was “unjustified”.
In July, the police arrested 14 people in several states with suspected links to militant group Islamic State.
Several weeks prior, two men were arrested for allegedly throwing a grenade at the Movida bar in Puchong, injuring eight people.
Authorities confirmed that it was the first “successful” attack by the IS group in Malaysia.
The two have been charged in court with attempted murder and committing a terrorist acts.
