Newsline: 53 years after establishing diplomatic ties Singapore to set up embassy in Israel

More than 50 years after Singapore set up diplomatic relations with Israel, the city-state will establish an embassy in the Jewish state. In a statement issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) on Monday (21 March), MFA said the embassy in Tel Aviv will “serve as a focal point and support Singapore companies seeking to expand their collaboration with potential Israeli partners”. (https://news.yahoo.com/singapore-set-up-embassy-israel-53-years-establishing-diplomatic-ties-151749182.html) The two countries set up diplomatic ties in 1969, a few years after they began a covert military partnership, with Israel playing a key role in helping to set up the fledgling Singapore defence force. Singapore’s interests in Israel are represented by an honorary Consulate-General in Tel Aviv while Lim Chuan Poh is Singapore’s non-resident ambassador-designate to Israel currently.
