KUALA LUMPUR JUNE 19: The government of Malaysia has agreed to contribute more than USD 1 million to Palestine as a humanitarian aid after the Israel’s regime attack last month.

Minister of Foreign Affairs, Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein said, the financial aid is aimed at rebuilding the COVID-19 test facility in Gaza that was destroyed due to the bombing incident. 

“Besides Malaysia, I suggest other countries will share the same interest and come forward to support and give aid to Palestine and this suggestion is accepted by Palestine Foreign Minister Dr. Riad Malki,” Hishammuddin said  in his meeting with his counterpart Riad in Turkey yesterday.

Hishammuddin is now in Turkey for a working visit that began yesterday.

Apart from that Hishammuddin said, Riad had shared with him on the current situation in Palestine informing that the Palestinians are still being attacked and facing a continuous violence from Israel.

“On behalf of Malaysia, I welcome the appreciation expressed by Dr. Riad Malki and subsequently shared with him that the focus of Malaysian government is to implement the efforts towards humanitarian aids for the Palestinians and to redevelop Gaza via cooperation with the non-governmental organisation (NGO),” Hishammuddin said in a statement here today.
