Malaysia declares support for Qatar’s role in Palestine peace negotiations

KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia declared its support for the important role played by Qatar in efforts to resolve the violence perpetrated by the Zionist Israeli regime against the Palestinian people.

Foreign Minister Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan, in a Facebook posting on Sunday (May 12), stated that Malaysia expressed its support for Qatar in a meeting with Qatar’s Prime Minister and Foreign Minister, Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al Thani, in Doha on Sunday.

Mohamad is currently in Qatar to accompany Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim who begins his official visit to Qatar on Sunday until Tuesday (May 14).

Meanwhile, Wisma Putra through a Facebook post, said Mohamad took the opportunity to thank his counterpart for Qatar’s important role in its relentless efforts to broker peace negotiations between Hamas and Israel.

According to Wisma Putra, Qatar’s Prime Minister and Foreign Minister also shared insights on the situation in the Middle East, particularly the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, which requires continuous efforts based on the dynamics between major powers and Israel.

“Both sides emphasised the need for an immediate and lasting ceasefire and emphasised the importance of ongoing negotiations,” according to the Facebook post.

The ministry also stated that Prime Minister Anwar’s speech during his official visit to Germany is seen as a turning point in global community perceptions of Israel’s aggressive and genocidal actions against Palestine.
