Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak said Saturday that Japan’s participation in talks for the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade agreement should not slow down the overall negotiations but rather help open up the region’s markets.

Najib told journalists after a meeting earlier Saturday of leaders from the nine countries currently involved in TPP negotiations that Japan’s decision to take part in the talks will have a positive impact, but it should not slow down the conclusion of the negotiations.
