Denmark Officials To Visit Malaysia

Your Danish Cartoons Controversy Hangover story of the day: a group of Denmark government officials will visit Malaysia to discuss various trade and political issues, including, unofficially I think, an easing of tensions caused by last year's riots and political unease spurred on by 2005's newspaper publication of Muhammed caricatures in Denmark. This is interesting to me because of Malaysia's political position in the Muslim world and that the foreign ministers apparently tried to work together through unofficial channels during the riots of a year ago.
