KUALA LUMPUR: The government of Malaysia expressed in the strongest terms its endorsement for the United Nations Security Council Resolution 2728, calling for an immediate ceasefire of all hostilities in Gaza, the immediate release of all hostages, and the immediate and urgent, expedited delivery of aid into the territory.

Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim said, for the sake of Ramadan, in the spirit for which this season is intended to engender contemplation, renewal of our faith, and return to family, today’s legally binding resolution must be enforced now.

“We must immediately relieve the people of Gaza from the immense pain and suffering they have now endured for almost six months.

“Particularly, the United States must prevail upon its ally to respect the will of the international community and accordingly observe the ceasefire and permit the immediate and massive entry of emergency aid.

“We applaud the bravery and commitment to humanity of the ten elected members of the council consisting of Algeria, Guyana, Ecuador, Japan, Malta, Mozambique, Sierra Leone, Slovenia, South Korea, and Switzerland,” Anwar said in a statement today.

Meanwhile Malaysia remains committed to the Palestinian cause and will continue efforts for the establishment of an independent and sovereign State of Palestine, based on the pre-1967 borders, with East Jerusalem as its capital, as well as the admission of Palestine as a full Member of the United Nations. –Malaysia World News
