Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong said on Thursday (6 July) that he shared his siblings’ wish not to carry on their dispute in public and to manage it privately.
Noting the latest public statement by his sister Wei Ling and brother Hsien Yang, PM Lee said in a statement that the wish is exactly what he has been trying to do.
But PM Lee also noted that his siblings’ statement repeated their previous allegations against him. He said he has already refuted them and stand by what he has said.
PM Lee also referred to a “ceasefire offer” from his siblings.
“They wanted me to call off my Ministerial Statement and the debate in Parliament, disband the Ministerial Committee, and not respond to their accusations. I could not agree to do any of that. It would have been improper and irresponsible,” he said.
