Palestine embassy to be set up in Jordan because Malaysia has no diplomatic ties with Israel, says Saifuddin

KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia's plan to open an embassy accredited to Palestine in Amman, Jordan is because it has no diplomatic ties with Israel, the Parliament heard.

"That is the main reason why we cannot open our office in Ramallah, in West Bank. If our embassy is opened in Ramallah, Malaysia will need to officially engage with Israel for logistics, administrative and immigration matters," Foreign Minister Datuk Saifuddin Abdullah (pic) told Datuk Seri Reezal Merican Naina Merican (BN-Kepala Batas) during the Minister's Question Time on Thursday (Oct 31).
