The Ministry of External Affairs on Friday said India will make an official request to Malaysian government very soon once the legal internal process gets completed in connection with controversial Islamic preacher Zakir Naik’s extradition.

As per media reports, Naik was given permanent residency in Malaysia.

“Maybe in the next couple of weeks, it will clear what will be the nature of the request,” MEA spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said.

When he asked about Pakistan’s claim of US mediation between India and Pakistan, Kumar said no truth in such claims as Rex Tillerson had recently concluded India’s visit and there was joint statement which didn't mention US to mediate between the two nations.

‘When Rex Tillerson was here there was joint statement which didn't mention US to mediate between India and Pakistan. No truth in Pak's claims,” Kumar said.
