OKYO: Malaysian former premier Mahathir Mohamad on Friday lashed out at the West over Myanmar, saying countries were using aid for cyclone victims as propaganda while rushing to condemn the junta. “When giving aid there is a tendency to make this occasion an opportunity to condemn and run down the Myanmar government,” Mahathir, a frequent critic of the West, told reporters during a visit here. “When you send materials, you advertise where they’re from. It seems almost as if you’re not interested in helping the victims but more in promoting the fact that you’re a great donor,” he added. afp
