Malaysia will continue supporting Palestinians, says deputy prime minister

BERNAMA – The Malaysian government will continue to support the Palestinian cause and will not yield to pressure from foreign powers on this issue, said the deputy prime minister.

Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said Malaysia’s stance should be respected as a sovereign nation. Malaysia need not worry about potential pressure from foreign powers to be vocal and consistent in advocating for the rights of the Palestinian people, he said.

“We should not be worried because we have our principles in this matter, and we know that for 75 years, Palestine has been oppressed, and major powers carried out neocolonialism in denying Palestinian rights,” he said.
