Malaysia pledges 16 mln US dollars aid to Palestine
font size    

Malaysia has pledged 16 million U.S. dollars of aid to the cash-squeezed Palestine, local media reported Monday.

Malaysian Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi made the offer in a meeting with Palestine President Mahmoud Abbas in the Egyptian resort of Sharm el-Sheikh .

The aid aims to help the Palestinian government to provide for the need of the Palestinian people following an aid boycott by major Western donor countries after the Hamas Movement won elections in January, Badawi said at a news conference after addressing a session at the World Economic Forum on Middle East.

Malaysia, as chairman of the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC), will also urge member nations to help Palestine, said Badawi.

Meanwhile, Abbas has accepted Badawi's invitation to visit Malaysia at a date yet to be decided, said the Malaysian prime minister.

Malaysia will channel the aid to the Palestinian government through Abbas, added Badawi.
