GE13: Singapore PM congratulates Najib on polls win

Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong telephoned Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak to congratulate him on his victory in the hard-fought general election.

Lee said he looked forward to continue working with Najib to strengthen the close bilateral partnership.

He also wrote a congratulatory letter to Najib, according to a statement released by Singapore's Foreign Affairs Ministry.

In his letter, the Singapore leader congratulated Najib on leading the Barisan Nasional to a well-deserved victory in the elections as well as on his win in Pekan, Pahang.

“The Barisan Nasional's convincing win reflects your people's confidence in your leadership and the value they place on continuity and stability. This was a particularly hard-fought general election but you ran a strong campaign that focused on your people's concerns and persuaded them of your vision for Malaysia.

“I wish you all the best in your next term of Government. I look forward to continue working with you to deepen our bilateral cooperation. As we discussed at our Leaders' Retreat in February, our countries have large and growing stakes in each other's success. Let us strengthen our close partnership for the benefit of both our peoples.

“Ho Ching (Mrs Lee) joins me in congratulating you, and in wishing you and (your wife) Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor continued good health and success. We hope to see you again.”
