PUTRAJAYA: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi has clarified that the 14 Mercedes E200 Kompressors purchased by the Terengganu government for RM3.43mil would be used for visiting foreign dignitaries.
He said that this was the decision he reached with Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak after speaking with Terengganu Mentri Besar Datuk Ahmad Said on Thursday.
Earlier Friday, Ahmad said, "We (Abdullah and Najib) reached a consensus on the matter during the meeting at Putra World Trade Centre (on Thursday). The matter has been solved."
The Terengganu government was criticised recently after it purchased 14 Mercedes E200 Kompressors for RM3.43mil.
Ahmad said both leaders have told him that the matter is solved and should be laid to rest.
