KUALA LUMPUR (Sept 20): Singapore’s President Halimah Yacob said she looks forward to hosting His Majesty Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri'ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah in the city state next month.

In a Facebook post on Monday (Sept 19), Halimah said she had met His Majesty while in London, when attending the state funeral service of Queen Elizabeth II, following the queen's passing on Sept 8.

“We took stock of the warm, long-standing and multifaceted relationship between Singapore and Malaysia, and the excellent bilateral cooperation between both countries.

“I look forward to hosting His Majesty for a state visit to Singapore next month," added Halimah.

The Agong's state visit to Singapore, originally scheduled for Sept 19, was postponed for His Majesty to attend the queen’s funeral.
