A senior Hamas delegation on Tuesday began an official visit to Malaysia to take part in the annual conference of the ruling party UMNU, Quds Press reported.
Headed by senior leader Maher Salah along with Ezzat Al-Reshq, Osama Hamdan, Musallam Umran and Abduallah Akrabawi, the delegation will take part in the meeting which marks the Malay party’s 71st anniversary.
The Hamas delegation met with the Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Abdul-Razaq, Deputy Prime Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi and UMNO Secretary-General Tengku Adnan Mansor.
During the different meetings, Hamas officials discussed the latest developments of the Palestinian issue with the Malaysian officials, including the American recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
