MALAYSIA CALLED FOR CONTINUED COOPERATION FOR SUSTAINABLE RECOVERY FROM THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC AT THE ONLINE MID-TERM MINISTERIAL CONFERENCE OF THE NON-ALIGNED MOVEMENT (NAM) 13-14 JULY 2021

Deputy Foreign Minister YB Dato' Kamarudin Jaffar delivered Malaysia’s statement at the “Online Mid-Term Ministerial Conference of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM)” in the evening of 14 July 2021 via a pre-recorded video.

In his statement, the Deputy Foreign Minister focused on three (3) essential issues, which are, the COVID-19 pandemic, the current situation in Palestine and the threat of nuclear weapons. He urged the Movement to work together to mitigate the impact of the pandemic and to ensure ample supplies of vaccine to all NAM Member States.

The Deputy Foreign Minister also urged the Movement to do all it can to put a stop to Israel’s violations towards the Palestinians and ensure the Occupying Power is held accountable for its crimes. He further called upon NAM Member States to sign and accept the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW) which entered into force early this year.

The NAM Mid-Term Ministerial Conference is usually convened a year and a half after the last NAM Summit to, among others, review developments and decisions of the preceding Summit and discuss matters of urgency. The Conference this year gathered NAM Member States to strengthen multilateral efforts in addressing global challenges, such as the COVID-19 pandemic. With the theme of “NAM at the Center of Multilateral Efforts in Responding to Global Challenges”, the Conference was participated by NAM Member States as well as observer states at the Ministerial, Deputy Ministerial and Ambassadorial level. It was chaired by Mr. Araz Azimov, Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Azerbaijan.

The Conference adopted a Political Declaration that highlights the central role played by NAM in mobilizing global efforts to address the negative consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition, the Declaration reaffirms the Movement’s shared commitment to maintaining and promoting international and regional peace, security and stability, as well as to peaceful resolution of disputes. It also welcomes Russia’s admission as an observer state of the Movement.

MALAYSIA- UNITED STATES COOPERATION ON COVID-19 RESPONSE

MALAYSIA- UNITED STATES COOPERATION ON COVID-19 RESPONSE

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs welcomes the arrival on 5 July 2021 of one (1) million doses of COVID-19 Pfizer vaccine contribution from the United States of America to Malaysia.

On behalf of the Government of Malaysia, I would like to once again express my sincere gratitude to my counterpart, His Excellency Antony Blinken and the Government of the United States for the generous contribution of its COVID-19 vaccines. These vaccines will greatly intensify Malaysia’s vaccination process and make meaningful progress to the ongoing rollout of Malaysia’s National COVID-19 Immunisation Programme.

The United States, through its Embassy in Kuala Lumpur, has also been extending various assistance and contributions to Malaysia since the start of the pandemic last year, including the in-kind contribution of medical supplies, Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), and ICT equipment, worth USD 250,000. Malaysia is highly appreciative of the invaluable support extended thus far by the United States and hope the close and friendly ties will be further strengthened for the mutual benefits of our two countries.

As conveyed earlier in my letter of 4 June 2021 to Secretary Blinken, I would also like to reiterate that Malaysia welcomes President Joe Biden's 3 June announcement of the United States' expression of support for temporary waiver of the Intellectual Property (IP) protection on COVID-19 vaccines. The Right Honourable Prime Minister, Tan Sri Dato' Haji Mahiaddin bin Haji Md Yassin had also announced in his address to the Nikkei International Conference in May 2021 Malaysia's support for the IP protection waiver for COVID-19 vaccines. In the common pursuit for equitable global access to the COVID-19 vaccines, Malaysia stands ready to establish all-round cooperation with the United States in vaccine research, development, and distribution.
