SINGAPORE (Oct 22): It must be exhausting for officials at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) to have to constantly correct statements in Malaysia.

For instance, they had to disabuse Johor Menteri Besar Osman Sapian this past week of what he thought will be discussed during his visit to Singapore on Oct 27. Osman reportedly said the construction of the “crooked bridge” would be on the table. Other items he said would be on the agenda were the price at which Singapore buys raw water from Malaysia, as well as bilateral development and investments.

In a statement, MFA said the coming meeting does not have the mandate to discuss the 1962 Water Agreement, nor did Singapore receive any official word to discuss the “crooked bridge”.
