Singapore’s Foreign Minister Vivian Balakrishnan spoke on the phone with his Malaysian counterpart, Saifuddin Abdullah, on Wednesday (December 5), urging  Malaysia to cease intrusions into Singapore territorial waters.

Malaysia proposed a meeting between the two foreign ministers to discuss the maritime boundary issues.

Singapore’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement: “Minister Balakrishnan noted that the (port limits) now extend beyond even the limits of Malaysia’s territorial sea claim in the area, as set out in Malaysia’s own 1979 map, which Singapore has never accepted.”

Malaysia proposed a meeting with the Malaysian Ministry of Foreign Affairs saying that “it is important to avoid any acts which may lead to escalation and fuel tension”.
