US Vice President Kamala Harris arrived in Singapore on Sunday, her first trip to Southeast Asia under the Biden administration amid a cloud over the handling of American troop withdrawal from Afghanistan.

Harris is scheduled to meet with Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong on Monday, Aug 23, and hold a joint news conference with him. She will also participate in a roundtable focused on supply chain resilience.
