KUALA LUMPUR – Malaysian PM Mahathir Mohammad breaks silence over missing Pakistani PM Imran Khan on Kualalumpur summit, it's emotional message.
Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad has said that they would have been happy had Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan attended the Kuala Lumpur Summit.
Talking to 92 News on Saturday, he said that they are sad that he (Imran Khan) has not been able to attend the summit for certain reasons. “In Geneva, I, Imran Khan and Tayyip Erdogan had made a plan to take steps for the welfare of the Muslim Ummah,” he said.
Mahathir Mohamad said that Imran Khan may visit next time if he is unable to attend the summit this time.
He said that Malaysia still stands with its stance on Kashmir.
Reuters add: Iran, Malaysia, Turkey and Qatar are considering trading among themselves in gold and through a barter system as a hedge against any future economic sanctions on them, Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad said.
At the end of an Islamic summit in Malaysia, Mahathir praised Iran and Qatar for withstanding economic embargoes and said it was important for the Muslim world to be self-reliant to face future threats.
“With the world witnessing nations making unilateral decisions to impose such punitive measures, Malaysia and other nations must always bear in mind that it can be imposed on any of us,” Mahathir said.
