Malaysia says opening of US embassy in Jerusalem fuels anger

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia strongly denounced the opening of the US embassy in occupied Jerusalem, saying it would undermine efforts to bring peace and fuel anger in the Middle East.

A statement issued by the Foreign Ministry said Malaysia sees that the move undermines efforts to achieve peace and find a comprehensive solution to the conflict between Palestine and Israel, and exacerbates the “tragic” situation in the region.

The statement said the relocation of the US embassy would impede any future negotiations.
