Zawya.com | arab business and finance: "Malaysia considers sending peacekeepers to Iraq: PM
KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 4, 2004 (Xinhua via COMTEX) -- Malaysian Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi said Wednesday that Malaysia was considering sending peacekeeping troops to Iraq under a Saudi Arabian proposal for such a force from Muslim nations.
'(Malaysia is) considering very deeply the proposal put forward by the Saudi government (that peacekeeping troops from Muslim nations be deployed in Iraq). Malaysia is considering deploying ( troops) with conditions,' Abdullah told reporters here.
'We are considering many factors...not one or two factors, so that is why it is better for us to wait for a while to see how the situation is. At the moment, we are not sending (troops) but we are watching and considering the proposal put forward by the Saudi government,' he said. "
