Malaysian first lady asks PM Imran if she could hold his hand


As Prime Minister Imran Khan’s visit to Malaysia came to an end late Wednesday night, the premier found his newest fan in the Malaysian first lady.

Khan had unveiled his government’s four-pronged strategy to pull the country out of its “quagmire of loans” in Malaysia but with all the talks regarding the country’s failing economy, a lighter moment emerged when Malaysian first lady Siti Hasmah Mohamad Ali asked Khan during a photo op: “Prime minister, can I hold your hand?”

PM Khan amusingly replied: “Sure!”, which drew laughter from the audience and a hearty chuckle from his Malaysian counterpart Mahathir Mohamad.
