It’s safe to say that Malaysia is doing considerably well handling the Covid-19 outbreak, compared to other countries.

And Malaysia is stepping up again, this time in collaboration with the Turkish government, to develop a vaccine for the coronavirus!

Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin took to his official Facebook page to share the news, adding that he has been in contact with the Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan for discussions and have fully agreed to make full use of the strength of both countries in combating the spread of the virus as well as the challenges that we may face post-Covid-19.

“Yesterday, I received a telephone call from His Excellency Mr Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the President of Turkey. I have expressed Malaysia’s sympathy and solidarity over the high number of cases and deaths related to Covid-19 recorded in Turkey. I also shared Malaysia’s experience in handling the Covid-19 outbreak including the implementation of several series of Movement Control Order (MCO) since March 18, which resulted in the declining number of infections and deaths, with recovery rates now surpassing 80%,” he said.

They also discussed the efforts to strengthen the existing bilateral ties and cooperation in various fields including trade, investment, tourism, higher education, medical and defence technology. According to our Prime Minister, Mr Erdogan also mentioned Malaysia’s big role in the fight for the Palestinian people.

“Turkey also called on Malaysia to remain active at the international level, including to strongly reject Israel’s unilateral actions against Palestine, including the annexation of Palestinian land. I also reiterated Malaysia’s commitment to continue working with any country with a common objective, that is supporting the Palestinians’ struggle to be free from Israeli occupation and realising their aspirations of a free Palestinian state,” he added.

They ended their 30-minute conversation with both sides agreeing that all bilateral cooperation initiatives should be resumed once the Covid-19 pandemic is over.

We honestly cannot wait to see the progress of Malaysia and Turkey’s collaborative efforts towards finding a vaccine that’ll help stop the spread of the Covid-19 virus.
