Kuala Lumpur (UNA-OIC) – Malaysian Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin on Saturday affirmed his country’s firm support for Palestine and the legitimate struggle of the Palestinian people for statehood and independence.
“Malaysia remains steadfast in supporting against the oppression of the Palestinians. Malaysia remains in strong solidarity with the Palestinians,” Muhyiddin Yassin said during an intervention before the 15th East Asia Summit (EAS), as quoted by Malaysian state-run Bernama agency.
“Our consistent and firm support for Palestine remains solid and stands by its position that the only viable solution to the Israel-Palestine conflict is through the two-state solution,” he said at the summit, held within the 37th ASEAN Summit and related meetings.
The Malaysian Prime Minister also called on the United Nations Security Council to “act as an honest broker to the Israel-Palestine conflict to ensure lasting peace, security and stability in the region”. He also demanded the international community, especially the UNSC, to shoulder its Charter responsibilities in resolving the conflict.
