Ambassador Brian McFeeters Arrives in Malaysia

U.S. Embassy in Malaysia

KUALA, Lumpur -- Ambassador Brian McFeeters, the new U.S. Ambassador to Malaysia, arrived in Kuala Lumpur the evening of Friday, February 26, 2021. The Ambassador is pleased to be returning to Malaysia, where he previously served at the U.S. Embassy in Kuala Lumpur as the Political Counselor from 2009 to 2011.

Upon his arrival, Ambassador McFeeters said “It is wonderful to be back in Malaysia. During my time here ten years ago I was privileged to meet and work with many talented and dedicated Malaysians. I am looking forward to again working with the strong U.S. Embassy team, which includes representatives from across the U.S. government. Our overall goal is stronger relations with the Malaysian people and government.”

“President Biden has emphasized that the United States needs to work closely with our friends, allies, and partners around the world to combat the myriad of global challenges we face from public health and economic recovery to human trafficking and climate change. We are stronger when we work together. I look forward to leading a team that works with Malaysia in many areas, including by fostering mutually beneficial security cooperation; further strengthening economic ties that support tens of thousands of jobs in both Malaysia and the United States; and building more people-to-people ties, including through exchange programs for young people. I know that we have a lot of work to do towards finally defeating COVID-19, but we are on that road together. I am glad that the Pfizer vaccine has successfully arrived in Malaysia and that the vaccine rollout has begun.” continued the Ambassador.

The Ambassador will begin meeting virtually with the U.S. Embassy team and key counterparts while completing his required quarantine. Ambassador McFeeters is accompanied by his wife, Melanie, and their daughter, Sara.
