PM’s statement on UN vote to recognise Palestinian State
I welcome today’s decision by the United Nations to recognise Palestine as a non- member state.
It provides Palestinians with the opportunity to join international treaties and agencies and we hope that all members of the UN respect today’s vote.
This landmark decision should not detract from the ultimate goal of ensuring that the Palestinian people have a land of their own. Malaysia calls on all parties to redouble their efforts towards a two-state solution, so that there is a durable and just peace in the region.
