Haidi Lun: Prime Minister I know you’re off to Singapore soon to deliver this keynote address at the Shangri-La Dialogue, its widely expected to be your most substantial remarks when it comes to geopolitics and foreign policy, defence and security to date.
We began the day at Kranji honouring the fallen Australians, our allies, who fell 75 years ago defending Singapore. From that time on, our destinies have been linked, Australia's and Singapore's.
Singaporeans will have exclusive access to a new long-term, multiple-entry visa option by 1 January 2018, making it easier to travel to Australia for business and pleasure.
Prime Minister: We are here, friends, very close friends, our formal diplomatic ties go right back to the foundation of Singapore by your father in 1965. But as we remember this morning, solemnly, at the Kranji War Cemetery, Australians fought and died and bled here to defend Singapore.
Australians woke this morning to the grim news that London was again in the grip of a terrorist attack. And again we send our heartfelt sympathy and love to the victims and their families and to the people of Britain.
Well last night I talked about the vital importance of maintaining the rule of law in our region and how important it was that the big fish and the little fish and the shrimps, lived together and under the law of rule without coercion, without being bullied or pressured by other parties.
Well thank you very much and Prime Minister Lee, Mrs Lee thank you so much again for your very warm welcome.
As always, visiting Singapore is a great pleasure - indeed, Prime Minister, you and your fellow Singaporeans make all Australians feel at home here, none more so than our son, daughter-in-law and granddaughter - born in 2015 and thus an SG50 baby.
The Turnbull Government is continuing to deliver vital infrastructure that is improving transport in Western Sydney, creating local jobs and growing the regional economy.
Before we talk about this important step in the construction of vital infrastructure in Western Sydney, I want to say some more about the events in London,
Prime Minister of Australia
The Hon Malcolm Turnbull MP
