In this year’s New Year message, PM Lee Hsien Loong wore a red shirt with a Chinese/Mandarin collar.
You can listen to PM Lee’s message below.
Why a mandarin collar? Did his staffers give him a wrong memo, thinking that this video was for Chinese New Year instead?
PM Lee might not have spoken much about the Terrex incident, but he sure is sending out a soft message to China. Subtle diplomacy.
After all, according to Defence Minister Ng Eng Hen, it is more effective to get our Terrex vehicles back in a quiet manner and staying out of the limelight.
We hope China gets our message. Singapore is a friend, and we just you to #returnourterrex so that we can move on.
That is all.
