PUTRAJAYA OCT.20: Malaysia has categorically rejected a statement reportedly made by an Israel official during a recent interview with Erem News claiming that Malaysia may join the Abraham Accords and normalize relations with Israel.
Minister of Foreign Affairs, Datuk Saifuddin Abdullah said, Malaysia stands with unwavering commitment to supporting the Palestinian cause and their struggle against the continued Israeli illegal occupation and systematic oppression.
“For many decades, the Palestinians have been suffering with discriminatory policies, denial of basic human rights, imposition of harsh living conditions as well as confiscation of their land and property.
“These and other inhumane acts committed by Israel, the occupying power, against the Palestinians are tantamount to the crime of Apartheid and clearly inconsistent with the pursuit of peace and peaceful co-existence in the region,” said Saifuddin in a statement here today.
Saifuddin added, Malaysia will continue to pursue actively the Palestinian agenda bilaterally as well as in various regional and international fora towards realizing the Palestinian People’s aspiration for freedom and their independent State of Palestine.
“Malaysia’s continuous support for the Palestinian struggle is also in recognition of the aspirations of the new generation of Palestinian fighters and activists.
“Malaysia will also continue to provide political and moral support as well as humanitarian assistance for the Palestinian people bilaterally and through international organisations such as the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) as well as facilitating the works of Malaysian civil society organisations,” Saifuddin said. –Malaysia World News
