Malaysia, Indonesia reaffirms unwavering support for Palestine

KUALA LUMPUR, July 3 (KUNA) -- Malaysia and Indonesia reaffirmed on Wednesday their unwavering support for Palestine, including its bid for full UN membership.
The reiteration of support for Palestine came during a meeting between Malaysian Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim and visiting Indonesian Foreign Minister Retno Marsudi.
"Our conversation touched on the issue of Palestine, with both nations reaffirming our unwavering support for justice for the people of Gaza and the acceptance of Palestine as a full member of the UN," Ibrahmin said after the meeting.
The Malaysian prime minister also said he discussed with Marsudi the Malaysia-Indonesia border matter, the issue of detained fishing vessels involving citizens of both countries, and Indonesian labor, as well as the humanitarian crisis in Myanmar.
Marsudi is on an official trip to Malaysia where, earlier today, she held bilateral talks with Foreign Minister Mohamad bin Hasan and discussed ongoing cooperation in preparation for the 17th Joint Commission for bilateral cooperation set to be held in Indonesia. (end) aab.ahm
