Malaysian PM claims Kashmir has been ‘invaded and occupied’, slams India, Israel, USA, Myanmar and bats for Rohingyas

However, the Malaysian PM admitted that Malaysia cannot dare to confront China on issues of aggression in the South China Sea or the treatment of Uighur Muslims because they don't have the capacity to take on China

Malaysian PM Mahathir Mohammad, in his speech at the UNGA, has stated that Jammu and Kashmir has been invaded and occupied. He has added that India should work with Pakistan to ‘resolve the problem by peaceful means’. His statement has also hinted that India is ignoring the UN and the ‘rule of law’.

He added that there may be reasons for India’s actions but it is still wrong.

Mahathir Mohammad, at an event at the Columbia University earlier, had slammed Israel and had defended his antisemitic statements and Holocaust denial. He had stated that though Malaysia accepts the state of Israel as a ‘fait accompli’ but it cannot accept the ‘blatant seizure’ of Palestine land by Israel for their settlements as well as the occupation of Jerusalem by Israel. Mohammad added that the Palestinians cannot even enter the settlements built on their land.

Mahathir Mohammad also condemned Myanmar for the alleged atrocities on the Rohingya Muslims. He accused Myanmar of carrying out genocide in the Rakhine province. He accused that many nations in the world are supporting ‘unfriendly countries’ despite UN resolutions and rule of law.

Earlier this month, when PM Modi and Mahathir Mohammad had met in Vladivostok, Russia during the EEF event organised by Russia, Mahathir’s foreign minister had informed Malaysian media that most of their discussion had centred around the issue of Jammu and Kashmir. He had also stated that Mahathir Mohammad had even insisted on bringing third parties in if India and Pakistan are unable to arrive at a peaceful resolution.

Mahathir Mohammad also slammed the US for imposing unilateral sanctions on Iran and stated that it has impacted Malaysia’s business with Iran. He also slammed Trump for pulling out of the 11-nation Trans-Pacific Partnership.

However, the Malaysian PM admitted that he and his country cannot take a confrontational stand with China, whether it is over China’s aggression in the South China sea, or its treatment of the Uighur Muslims. He stated that Malaysia is too small to take on China and in the past, they used to send gold and silver to China to pledge their subservience. He acknowledged that Malaysia cannot exist in conflict with China if it wants to survive.
