Wife of Malaysian Prime Minister, Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor said this when asked to comment on Japan’s quake-tsunami disaster.
“Japan’s earthquake and tsunami is a result of negligence in conducting environmental-friendly developments.
“To me, this is a lesson to other countries, that in everything they do or in whatever development they plan, they should study the surrounding environment and connect it with climate change and green technology,” she told private news channel Astro Awani.
A video clip of Rosmah airing her view instantly became a hit among internet users, circulating in sites such as Twitter and Facebook, and being met with sarcastic comments from viewers.
