Mustapa: Terms of HSR agreement were no longer viable due to economic situation


PETALING JAYA: The terms of the 2016 bilateral agreement between Malaysia and Singapore on the High Speed Rail (HSR) project that was supposed to link Kuala Lumpur and Singapore were no longer viable due to the economic situation, which led to its eventual termination, says Datuk Seri Mustapa Mohamed.

The Minister in the Prime Minister's Department said the current economic situation had adversely affected Malaysia's fiscal position.
