2. (1) Where the Yang di-Pertuan Agong is satisfied that a representative of Malaysia who is accredited to or stationed in a foreign country is accorded any of the privileges and immunities specified in the Vienna Conventions on Consular and Diplomatic Relations, he may, on the basis of reciprocity of treatment, by order, direct that such representative of the foreign country as may be specified in the order, being a representative who is accredited to or stationed in Malaysia be accorded with any of the said privileges and immunities.
