Turkiye and Malaysia will jointly highlight the issue of Islamophobia, said Malaysian Prime Minister on Wednesday, Anadolu News Agency reports.

Anwar Ibrahim met with Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) Secretary General, Hussein Brahim Taha, during his visit to Saudi Arabia, Ibrahim said on Twitter.

“We talked about various issues including the issue of Palestine, Afghanistan, Islamophobia, the peace negotiation process in southern Thailand and the Philippines as well as several other problems facing Muslims today,” said Brahim.“In that meeting, I emphasised that Malaysia will find a way with the OIC to deal with the issue of oppression of the people in Palestine,” he added.

As an active member of the OIC, Malaysia will also play a role in dealing with issues faced by Muslims around the world, Brahim said.
