Malaysia will continue to actively engage in diplomatic methods around the world, including meeting with Israel allies, to end the bloodshed crisis in Gaza. Foreign Minister Datuk Seri Dr. Zambry Abdul Kadir will meet with his counterpart in India, Subrahmanyam Jaishankar, during his visit to the country. Malaysia’s influence is often sought after by international organizations when it comes to the Palestinian issue, despite being a small country. The first official visit to India by Zambry is expected to draw attention as India is known to have strained relations with Muslims, especially neighboring Pakistan. Malaysia and India are members of various organizations such as the Commonwealth, Indian Ocean Rim Association (IORA), Asia Cooperation Dialogue (ACD), and Group of 15 (G15). Zambry is scheduled to chair the Malaysia-India Commission meeting in New Delhi and pay a courtesy visit to Indian Vice President Jagdeep Dhankar. Malaysia’s stance remains in favor of a two-state solution based on the pre-1967 UN-drawn map, with East Jerusalem as the capital of Palestine. However, this is rejected by most Islamic countries, particularly Arab nations, which support a one-state solution without Israel. They believe that a two-state solution implicitly recognizes Israel as a legitimate state, despite its illegitimate formation in 1948.
