Tun Dr. Mahathir gave an outright "no" to a public apology to Tun Salleh Abas in his response to a proposal by the newly appointed Minister in the Prime Minister's Department.
Reason? It's very simple. As Tun Dr. Mahathir pointed out in Sin Chew Daily today, he had done no wicked act during his 22-yrar tenure as Prime Minister of Malaysia.
Tun is as diplomatic as ever!
