PUTRAJAYA, Dec 10 — The Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) project will be continued but subject to a review, said Defence Minister Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan.
Mohamad said he needed to be briefed soon to get a clearer picture of the multi-billion ringgit project which had been hit by delays.
“I will get a briefing from the relevant parties so that I have a deeper understanding of the background and issues involved.
“We will ensure that the ships are built; no point talking about history. That is important because it (LCS) is a strategic asset of the Malaysian Armed Forces (MAF),” he said.
He was speaking at a press conference after attending the 2022 graduation ceremony of the National Resilience College (NRC), Malaysian Armed Forces Defence College (MAFDC) and Malaysian Armed Forces Staff College (MAFSC) at the National Centre for Defence Studies (PuspaHanas) here today.
