In his speech on the 12TH WORLD ISLAMIC ECONOMIC FORUM prime minister of Malaysia has given the follwoing statement:

Without political stability, there can be no economic progress. And there has been far too much turmoil in the Muslim world in recent years.

The invasion of Iraq in particular set in motion a disastrous chain of events. Chaos, destruction, and the possible break-up of nation states are spectres that have been visited on countries such as Iraq, Syria and Libya.

The so-called Arab Spring yielded a harvest of instability across the region. Thousands have paid with their lives, while terrorists and other armed militias now roam freely over once secure lands.

A Pandora’s Box of sectarian conflict has been unleashed.

Foreign interventions in Muslim countries have led to intended and unintended consequences – which are still being felt today.

By comparison, majority-Muslim countries such as Malaysia and Indonesia, which have not been subject to foreign intervention, are oases of peace and stability.
