Map indicating locations of Malaysia and Palestine



The relations between Malaysia and Palestine are strong brotherly relations.[1] In 2012, there are approximately around 3,000–5,000 Palestinian students in Malaysia,[2] with many Palestinians also choose Malaysia as a country for temporary refuge.[3][4] Due to the Israeli occupation of Palestinian territories, Malaysia has strongly stood up for the rights and freedoms of the Palestinians and has supported the struggles of the Palestinians,[2] with the country also currently refused to recognise the State of Israel until a peace agreement is reached to realise the two-state solution.[5][6]
