HSR not on agenda of Singapore minister’s visit to Malaysia

THE revival of the Kuala Lumpur-Singapore High-Speed Rail (HSR) project was not discussed during the republic’s Foreign Minister Vivian Balakrishnan’s recently concluded four-day official visit to Malaysia. 

“No, we did not discuss that. We focused on the RTS – the Rapid Transit System that will connect Johor to Singapore,” Balakrishnan responded when asked by Singapore media on whether the revival of the HSR was discussed during his January 15 visit.
