SEPANG: Singapore Prime Minister Lawrence Wong departs for home on Wednesday (June 12) after concluding a successful two-day working visit to Malaysia.

Wong, accompanied by his wife Loo Tze Lui, was given a red carpet send-off and a guard of honour by the First Battalion Royal Ranger Regiment, under the command of Captain Mohd Shahrin Mohd Yusuf.

The Singapore Airlines SQ125 flight carrying Wong and his delegation departed from the Kuala Lumpur International Airport Terminal 1 here at 8.40 pm.

Also present were Deputy Foreign Minister Datuk Mohamad Alamin and the Foreign Ministry’s Chief of Protocol, Datuk Mohd Aini Atan.

Earlier, Wong met his Malaysian counterpart, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

In their first official meeting at Seri Perdana, both leaders discussed bilateral relations.

In his inaugural visit to Malaysia after being sworn in as the Singapore Prime Minister on May 15, Wong showed a high commitment like his predecessor (Lee Hsien Loong) in addressing outstanding and ongoing bilateral issues, namely the Johor-Singapore Special Economic Zone (JS-SEZ), water agreement as well as airspace and maritime borders.

Wong also received a courtesy call from Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Fadillah Yusof, who is also the Energy Transition and Water Transformation Minister, to exchange views on bilateral matters and regional and international issues of mutual interest. – Bernama
