H.E. Mr K Shanmugam
Ministry of Foreign Affairs


I have learned with great sadness about the passing of the former Prime Minister of Singapore Mr Lee Kuan Yew on Monday, 23 March 2015. On behalf of the Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF), I would like to express our deepest condolences and heartfelt sympathy to the bereaved family, the Government of the Republic of Singapore and the People of Singapore.

Mr Lee Kuan Yew, the founding father of modern Singapore, is one of the great statesmen of the world. Under his leadership, Singapore has been transformed into a vibrant, prosperous and innovative state, playing an influential and increasingly important role in regional and international affairs. Mr Lee will be dearly remembered by the people of Singapore and the world.

Yours sincerely,

Ambassador ZHANG Yan
