Singapore says Malaysia ties in 'downward spiral' but hopes for amicable outcome

SINGAPORE, Jan 14 (Reuters) - Singapore’s foreign minister said on Monday ties with neighbouring Malaysia have been in a “downward spiral” over a series of maritime and airspace disputes but hoped the issues could be resolved amicably.

Singapore’s Vivian Balakrishnan and his Malaysian counterpart, Saifuddin Abdullah, met last week and agreed to take steps to de-escalate tensions over the air and maritime disputes. (Reporting by Fathin Ungku Editing by Paul Tait)
