ABIM SUPPORTS MALAYSIA’S INITIATIVE TO OPEN EMBASSY ACCREDITED TO PALESTINE IN JORDAN
Muslim Youth Movement Malaysia (ABIM) expresses its full support to Prime Minister YAB Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad for his announcement on 25th of October 2019 that the Malaysian government will open an embassy accredited to Palestine in Amman, Jordan. The decision was announced on the 18th Non-Aligned Movement – NAM Summit in Baku, Azerbaijan recently.
ABIM stresses that the decision to establish the Malaysian Embassy is commendable and in line with Malaysia’s stance in the Palestinian issue which holds strong sentiments in the country, as envisioned in the Foreign Policy Framework of New Malaysia.
ABIM believes that the initiative will reflect the strong support towards the Palestinians struggle, given the heavy persecution and pressure suffered continuously by the Palestinians. Although the US has offered a new peace plan, but in the eye of many quarters and critics, the plan is perceived as biased and benefits only the Zionist regime.
