On behalf of the Prime Minister, let me thank you for this initiative which will hopefully go a long way in fostering better ties among Malaysians of various ethnicities. It is good to remind students of the strength of our unity based on the Federal Constitution and Rukun Negara, which has served us well since Merdeka.
