    INTERVIEWER: FINALLY YOUR HIGHNESS, CAN YOU TELL ME WHAT'S BEHIND BRUNEI'S LAST MINUTE REFUSAL TO JOIN THE FEDERATION. (SULTAN THEY REPLIED VIA INTERPRETER).



    SULTAN: THIS HAS BEEN EXPLAINED IN THE PRESS STATEMENT ISSUES BY THE BRUNEI DELEGATION LAST MONDAY. ON THAT DAY THE GOVERNMENT OF THE FEDERATION OF MALAYA INFORMED THE BRUNEI DELEGATION THAT THEY FOUND THEMSELVES IN A POSITION WHERE THEY WERE UNABLE TO GIVE EFFECT TO TERMS PREVIOUSLY AGREED OR TO ASSURANCES REPEATEDLY GIVEN. IN THOSE CIRCUMSTANCES, I AND MY GOVERNMENT WERE LESS EMBARRASSED AS TO THE ABILITY OF THE GOVERNMENT OF THE FEDERATION OF MALAYA AT THIS PRESENT TIME TO GIVE EFFECT TO THE NEGOTIATED TERMS GOVERNING THE ENTRY OF BRUNEI INTO THE MALAYSIA. WE WERE UNABLE THEREFORE TO TAKE PART IN THE SIGNING OF THE MALAYSIA AGREEMENT.



    INTERVIEWER: THANK YOU VERY MUCH YOUR HIGHNESS.
