Lee is usually due to meet with Trump in Washington on October 23, the second encounter between both leaders. The Singapore leader said his impression of Trump so far was someone who was “confident of himself” as well as who possessed a “very set view of the entire world, as well as of people.”
The 65-year-old added which he hoped to deepen Singapore’s relationship with the Trump administration as well as the United States.
“the idea’s a very sound relationship which’s based on the basic strategic congruence of views, about the entire world, about the region,” Lee said.
“as well as deep co-operation over many years, from the economic sphere, trade, investments; in security as well as defense area, we’ve trained from the U.S., the U.S. forces use our facilities, we’ve fought together in Desert Storm, as well as right now from the coalition against ISIS,” he added.
On Friday, China Southern Airlines confirmed the idea had agreed to purchase 38 Boeing planes by the U.S. aircraft maker for $5.65 billion. The Guangzhou-based airline said the deal might help to boost capacity amid increasing air-travel demand.
