KUALA LUMPUR, July 2 (Bernama) -- Communications Minister Fahmi Fadzil has presented the Instrument of Royal Invitation for the Installation of the 17th King of Malaysia, His Majesty Sultan Ibrahim, to the King of Bahrain, Sheikh Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa.

In a Facebook post today, Fahmi, who is also the chairman of the Special Committee for Events in Conjunction with the Installation of the 17th King, said the instrument of invitation was presented with the consent of Sultan Ibrahim.

"The Instrument of Royal Invitation was handed over through the son of Sheikh Hamad, Sheikh Abdullah bin Hamad Al Khalifa, in Manama, Bahrain. 

"While welcoming us, Sheikh Abdullah conveyed greetings from the King of Bahrain and expressed His Majesty’s desire to see the relationship with Malaysia continue to grow and prosper," he said.
