The Malaysian government says it will not allow Israeli Paralympic swimmers to enter the country for a swimming meet later this year. The meet is a qualifying event for the 2020 Paralympics, and the International Paralympic Committee said it is disappointed with the country's decision and is aiming to "find a solution" to the matter. Malaysia is one of the few Muslim countries to have no diplomatic ties with Israel and bans people with Israeli passports from entering the country.
