PRIME Minister Lee Hsien Loong is planning a trip to Malaysia this Saturday to meet Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad, he said on Wednesday.

In a speech during the debate on the President’s Address, Mr Lee said Singapore needs to pay close attention to its relationship with Malaysia, its closest neighbour.

“We hope Malaysia is stable and prosperous. We have enjoyed good relations with Malaysia under former PM Najib Razak, and cooperated on major projects that benefit both sides,” he said.
