The deal reflects the continued bilateral financial cooperation between Japan and Malaysia that will contribute to the stability of financial markets, the countries said in a joint statement.

It will further strengthen the growing economic and trade ties between the two countries,  it added.

The arrangement, which enables both authorities to swap their local currencies for US dollars, is aimed at safeguarding each other in times of currency turmoil, such as speculative attacks./.
