[Dear Tun Mahathir]
Congratulations on your victory at the 14th General Election and on being sworn in as Malaysia’s 7th Prime Minister. I would also like to congratulate Pakatan Harapan for winning a tough fight, and for securing the Malaysian people’s mandate in this watershed election.
Malaysia is Singapore’s nearest neighbour. We share a long history, with deep and close relationships at all levels. We have robust trade and investment ties, and also cooperate closely together in ASEAN and in international fora. We have had extensive cooperation with successive Malaysian Governments, and we had strong, mutually-beneficial ties and interactions during your previous term as Prime Minister. I am confident that under your leadership, our two countries can find ways to further strengthen and deepen the bilateral relationship.
Ho Ching and I wish you and Tun Siti Hasmah continued success, good health, and happiness. We look forward to seeing you soon.
Lee Hsien Loong
Tun Mahathir bin Mohamad
