MO,18/1/2018, KUALA LUMPUR: The Embassy of Argentina in Malaysia is seeking for the public’s assistance in locating Alum Langone Avalos, a 7-year-old Argentine girl, who was reported as missing since June 2017. The embassy in a statement said Alum, at 1.25 metres tall with dark brown hair and green eyes, was believed to be last seen in Kuala Pilah, Negeri Sembilan and was heading to Kulai, Johor.

“Alum’s parents, both Argentine, are separated and the mother, Elisabeth, was granted full custody of the child. The father abducted Alum from her school and left Argentina illegally. “The Embassy confirms that her former partner was recently seen with the child in different locations in Malaysia,” it said.

Alum’s mother, Elisabeth Avalos is asking for the media’s attention on this case to bring home her daughter and is now in Malaysia hoping to put an end to her seven months misery being torn apart from her only daughter.

“The Malaysian authorities have been extremely cooperative with us, and we are very hopeful that we will soon find Alum. To be able to achieve this, any information from the public about the case will be very much appreciated”, said Manuel Balaguer Salas, Ambassador of Argentina to Malaysia.

Canada will not move embassy to Jerusalem



OTTAWA: Canadian government would not move its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem and will keep it in Tel Aviv.

Jordan’s Petra news agency reported that Canada still does not recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital city.

Canada’s long-standing position is that the status of Jerusalem can be resolved only as part of a general settlement of the Palestinian-Israeli dispute.

This has been the policy of consecutive governments, both Liberal and Conservative,” press secretary of the Ministry of Canada’s Foreign Affairs Adam Austen said in a statement late Tuesday.

“We are strongly committed to the goal of a comprehensive, just and lasting peace in the Middle East, including the creation of a Palestinian state living side-by-side in peace and security with Israel,” Austen added.

The Canadian newspaper, Globe and Mail reported that the Canadian government stressed it would not transfer to Jerusalem amid reports US President Donald Trump would relocate the American embassy to the holy city of Jerusalem and recognise it as the country’s capital.

The move risks fueling violence in the Middle East and breaks with decades of US foreign policy that Jerusalem’s status must be determined in negotiation with the Palestinians, who wants to make East Jerusalem the capital of their future state, the newspaper noted.

It also confirmed that the international community, including Canada, does not recognise Israel’s annexation of East Jerusalem, which Israel captured in the 1967.
