The Singaporean Ministry of Foreign Affairs on June 7 gave explanations of Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong’s remarks relating to Cambodia and Vietnam at the 2019 Shangri-La Dialogue.
In his remarks at the Shangri-La Dialogue and on his Facebook page in late May, PM Lee mentioned the so-called Vietnam’s “invasion” and “occupation” of Cambodia in 1979.
In response, the Cambodian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation issued a statement, saying that the Singaporean leader’s remarks are against the revival of the Cambodian people and show that Singapore supports the genocidal regime and wants this regime to return to Cambodia.
