  • Description

    The Canadian Prime Minister, Mr Pierre Trudeau, arrived in Singapore today (Friday) for an overnight stay and discussions on South East Asian problems with the Prime Minister, Mr Lee Kuan Yew.

    Mr Trudeau's Canadian aircraft taxied in to Singapore's Paya Lebar airport from Kuala Lumpur where the Canadian leader spent 40 hours. Waiting on the tarmac was Singapore's acting Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mr Barker, and the Canadian High Commissioner, Mr Johan Hadwen.

    A guard of honour was provided by Singapore Guard Unit. Mr Barker introduced Mr Trudeau to a long line of Cabinet ministers, members of the diplomatic corps and Members of Parliament. A big group of Canadian citizens living in Singapore also gave Mr Trudeau a warm welcome.

    The serious side of his visit began this afternoon with talks with Mr Lee Kuan Yew. The two prime ministers were expected to discuss a wide range of subjects mostly concerned with recent developments in South East Asia and the Cambodian situation.

    From Singapore, the Canadian Prime Minister will travel to Hong Kong and Japan before returning home.
