Malaysia satisfied with objectives achieved at APEC — Anwar

KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 23 — Malaysia is happy with the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) conference as the nation managed to secure RM63.02 billion in proposed investments, said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

In a Facebook post, he said Malaysia also made its stand loud and clear on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and the untold humanitarian crisis unfolding in Gaza, throughout the conference’s duration.

“Our message was easily understood and clear in perspective, stating that the killings, aggression and atrocities in Gaza by the Zionist regime of Israel must stop,” Anwar said.

He added that APEC must remain a platform for all countries to gather and develop a strategy to stimulate the economy and maintain a high standard of cooperation and respect among each other.

Anwar arrived in San Francisco on November 13 to attend the APEC, which ended on November 18.
