A very good evening to all of you.
I am very happy to be here today for the launch of Puan Noor Aishah’s book. We would all remember Singapore’s first President Encik Yusof Ishak and his wife Puan Noor Aishah.
PM Lee Hsien Loong made a working visit to Germany from 6 to 11 July 2017. He visited Berlin on 6 July 2017, Hamburg from 7 to 8 July 2017 to attend the G20 Leaders’ Summit, and Munich from 9 to 11 July 2017.
I note that Dr Lee Wei Ling and Mr Lee Hsien Yang have stated on 6 July 2017 that they welcome Mr Lee Hsien Loong’s desire, stated on 4 July 2017, to manage the disagreement in private. Like most Singaporeans, I regard this as a positive development.
