Singapore (VNA)
– Foreign ministries of Singapore and Malaysia on May 2 said the 10th meeting between Prime Ministers of the two countries has been postponed to later this year due to COVID-19.

Singaporean Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and his Malaysian counterpart Muhyiddin Yassin were initially scheduled to meet on May 3.

The information came following the visit to Singapore from May 1-2 by Malaysian Foreign Minister Hishammuddin Hussein.

Singapore has to tighten COVID-19 prevention and control measures, given a spike in community infections over the past week. Malaysia said it will do the same to cope with a surge in COVID-10 cases over the past two weeks./.
