PETALING JAYA: Neighbours Singapore and Indonesia have congratulated Anwar Ibrahim on his appointment as Malaysia’s 10th prime minister.

Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong said he was looking forward to meeting his Malaysian counterpart to discuss the common issues faced by the two countries and also to strengthen their bilateral relations, Bernama reported.

Lee said Anwar’s appointment came amid significant challenges in the region as well as internationally.

“As close neighbours and friends, Singapore and Malaysia should work together to manage these challenges and explore new opportunities for cooperation,” he was quoted as saying.

Lee went on to say that the two countries were “steadfast partners” through the Covid-19 pandemic and the close coordination between its ministers allowed for borders to be re-opened and maintain the flow of essential goods and workers.
