Official Statements

Regarding Prime Minister Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad of Malaysia

President Donald J. Trump congratulates Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad on his having been sworn in today as the new Prime Minister of Malaysia. The President also congratulates all Malaysians on their participation in a competitive and peaceful election campaign.

The United States–Malaysia relationship is rooted in longstanding and strong people-to-people ties, shared democratic values, and commercial relations. The United States looks forward to continuing to work closely with Malaysia to further strengthen the United States–Malaysia Comprehensive Partnership, and to address common international and regional challenges.

On Iranian Regime Provocation against Israel

The United States condemns the Iranian regime’s provocative rocket attacks from Syria against Israeli citizens, and we strongly support Israel’s right to act in self-defense.  The Iranian regime’s deployment into Syria of offensive rocket and missile systems aimed at Israel is an unacceptable and highly dangerous development for the entire Middle East.  Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) bears full responsibility for the consequences of its reckless actions, and we call on the IRGC and its militant proxies, including Hizballah, to take no further provocative steps.

The United States also calls on all nations to make clear that the Iranian regime’s actions pose a severe threat to international peace and stability.

Trump will welcome President Shavkat Mirziyoyev of Uzbekistan for his historic first visit to the White House on May 16, 2018. President Trump and President Mirziyoyev will renew the United States–Uzbekistan bilateral strategic partnership, in order to pursue shared interests and address emerging challenges. They will also discuss Uzbekistan’s progress on implementing important reforms, enhancing trade and investment, and addressing the regional security situation, including developments in Afghanistan.
