KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA – Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, along with the Council of Ministers, has initiated a campaign urging the United Nations (UN) to accept Palestine as a member state.
The initiative involves sending specially designed postcards to the UN Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres.
On Wednesday (17 Jan), Prime Minister Anwar and his ministers signed a special postcard bearing the message, “We appeal for the UN to accept the State of Palestine as a full member. Ceasefire now!”
The campaign, named “Kempen Poskad Khas Palestin Merdeka” (Special Postcard Campaign for the Freedom of Palestine) aims to convey the aspirations of Malaysians while condemning violence and cruelty against the Palestinian people by the Zionist regime.
In a Facebook post, PM Anwar expressed his hope that the sincere voice of Malaysians, as conveyed through the special postcard, would receive serious attention from Secretary-General Guterres.
“This morning, I and the ministerial delegation have signed and sent a special postcard addressed to the Secretary-General of the United Nations (UN), Antonio Guterres.
“This special postcard is intended to convey the wishes of the Malaysian people by urging the UN to accept Palestine as a member state and demanding that violence and cruelty against the Palestinian people by the Zionist regime be stopped immediately,” he wrote.
The postcards, he mentioned, would be submitted through Malaysia’s Permanent Representative to the UN.
The Ministry of Communications issued a statement on Facebook the same day outlining the details of the campaign.
The postcards, priced at RM2 each (inclusive of a 90 sen stamp), will be available for purchase starting Thursday (Jan 18) at all post offices in Malaysia. The public can also conveniently make online purchases through Pos Malaysia Bhd’s official website.
The initiative, a collaboration between the Ministry of Communications and Pos Malaysia Berhad, serves as a channel for Malaysians to express their views on global peace and security.
Additionally, Mr Anwar invited Malaysians to participate actively in the campaign, emphasizing the importance of collective efforts to advocate for the rights and recognition of the State of Palestine.
