Mohd Najib Tun Abdul Razak, Prime Minister of Malaysia

Malaysia has strongly underlined the need for a Syrian-led inclusive political process.

Prime Minister Mohd Najib Tun Abdul Razak told the UN General Assembly on Saturday that Malaysia is against any unilateral action to resolve the conflict. He stressed that all sides must come together to work out a political settlement.

” We welcome the recent US-Russia Framework Agreement, condemn without reservation the use of chemical weapons, and call on the international community to intensify their efforts to explore all possible diplomatic options for peace under the auspices of the UN. We must also find the vision and the political will to commit to a just solution for Palestine. We fervently hope that progress towards a viable Palestinian State – based on the pre-1967 borders, and with East Jerusalem as its capital, will be made.”
