Muslim nations must conduct effective measures to support Palestine: Amir-Abdollahian

In a separate phone call with his Malaysian counterpart Zambry Abd Kadir on Sunday, Amir-Abdollahian said Muslim states should carry out effective measures to support Palestine.

The top Iranian diplomat added that Iran and Malaysia, as two Muslim nations, have numerous commonalities. He expressed hope that Tehran and Kuala Lumpur would further develop relations in all fields.

Kadir, for his part, said Iran is an important trade partner of his country in the region and hoped that Malaysia would expand relations with the Islamic Republic.

He added that an agreement reached between Iran and Saudi Arabia earlier this month to restore mutual relations would further promote peace and stability in West Asia.
