Haze issue in Singapore
"Indonesia as you know is a member of the ministerial sub-committee meeting on transboundary haze, and if the situation worsen then there is maybe the possibility for us to reconvene a quick meeting so that we can explore what are the additional measures that we need to take," said Dr. Yaacob.
Dr. Yaacob said it is a matter that cannot be taken lightly and Singapore is ready to provide assistance in fire-fighting efforts.
He said Indonesia has been reminded of the need to do more in tackling the issue when ministers responsible for the environment and their representatives from Asean member states had met in Brunei on October 13 for the sixth meeting of the Asean Agreement on Transboundary Haze Pollution.
