Parliament Speaker Mohamed Nasheed has received invitation to address the Palestinian National Council and the Israeli Knesset.
Nasheed announced the invitation during Thursday’s parliamentary session. He said that, despite receiving an invitation to address the parliaments, he has yet to decide.
Further, Speaker Nasheed said that he strongly believes in the rights of the Palestinian people and their right to a sovereign state, and that no Maldivian parliamentarian can disagree with him. He added that the Maldivians want to help the Palestinians in whatever way they can.
Nasheed also said that he would make his decision after consulting with as many people as possible.
