(SBU) Office of Defense Cooperation chief Lieutenant Colonel
Steve Ma met Brigadier General Azizan bin Shaari, Director of
Materiel with Royal Malaysia Air Force (RMAF), on December 28
to convey an official request for a comprehensive report (ref

engines. BG Azizan, one of our points of contact for foreign
military sales, appeared willing to establish a dialogue with
us on the F-5 issue and expressed hope that his office would
have something to us in writing by January 8, 2010.
