Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said on Tuesday US prosecutors had promised to help return money that Goldman Sachs charged for its dealings with troubled Malaysian state fund 1MDB.

KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama): Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad has described the relationship between Malaysia and Singapore like twins.

“Malaysia and Singapore are like twins, except maybe the elder twin is a little bit bigger than the younger one.

“As with most countries, there will be differences and there will be competition between us.

"However, it will help us grow even faster,” he said in a Facebook post on Thursday (Dec 6).

Dr Mahathir also thanked his Singapore counterpart Lee Hsien Loong for receiving him at the Asean summit last month.

Earlier, Singapore Transport Minister Khaw Boon Wan claimed that Malaysian government vessels have been continually intruding into its territorial waters off Tuas with 14 intrusions so far.

In a statement, he also said Singapore has decided to extend the Singapore Port Limits off Tuas via the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (Port Limits) (Amendment) Notification 2018.  - Bernama
