The Malaysian government has devised a new solution to their asylum seeker problems.
The new policy involves sending a boatload of 400 asylum seekers from their shores and aimed for Australian waters.
These four hundred or their equivalent will then be sent directly back to Malaysia, by Australia, under the new plan and in return Australia will accept 2000 asylum seekers from Malaysia.
The Malaysian foreign affairs minister has produced figures to show that at the rate of one boat a week the Malaysian government should be rid of all of their 84,200 current asylum seekers within a year.
He also stated that he could not believe how simple the solution was and encouraged other Asian governments to follow their lead.
