Sultan Sulu Jamalul Kiram III got the support of his fellow Tausugs in Mindanao in reclaiming Sabah from Malaysia.

The Tausugs, an ethnic group in the Philippines, used to be under the Sulu Sultanate, an independent state, which once ruled over areas that are now known as the provinces of  Tawi-Tawi, Basilan, Palawan, and Sulu, including the eastern part of Sabah formerly North Borneo.  There are also Tausugs who have settled in Sabah and refer to their race as Suluk.

On Sunday, March 17, Tausugs marched on the streets of Jolo in Sulu to show their support to the sultanate's claim to Sabah.
