Malaysia is looking to cancel multibillion-dollar Chinese-backed infrastructure projects signed by the previous scandal-tainted government as it digs itself out of debt, Malaysia’s prime minister said Monday during an extensive interview with the Associated Press. Under Mahathir, China’s infrastructure project in Malaysia are under threat. The Prime Minister has halted projects, including the multibillion-dollar rail line that was supposed to connect Malaysia’s east coast to the capital, Kuala Lumpur, and Thailand. During the interview, the prime minister also expressed his wish to see the price of raw water sold by Malaysia to Singapore increase by more than 10 times. Singapore pays 3 Ringgit cent per 1,000 gallons of raw water from Johor and sells treated water at 50 sen per equal volume.
