Malaysia and Singapore agree that providing humanitarian assistance to Palestine is paramount.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim said that during a joint press conference with Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong after the 10th Malaysia-Singapore Leaders’ Retreat on Monday (Oct 30), alluding to the different approach taken by each side since the Israel-Palestine conflict began on Oct 7.

Meanwhile, Lee said he does not think that the conflict should affect Singapore-Malaysia bilateral relations, and pointed out that Malaysia's situation is not the same as Singapore's due to a different diplomatic situation, but there's no reason for that to cause difficulty between the two countries.
