Reassuring Singapore. Abdullah Ahmad Badawi has reassured his Singaporean counterpart during a 1-on-1 meeting in Helsinki that the this-is-my-idea Johor Super Corridor project will benefit the island Republic.
The NST, the English-language daily run by former Singapore Straits Times operatives, decided to bury the story deep in another piece ("PM: Include non-Europeans as peacekeepers").
Sister paper Berita Harian, however, was told to play up the issue on the front page yesterday ("Batal Jambatan tak jejas hubungan: PM").
And the Singapore Straits Times carried a similar story quoting the Malaysian prime minister ["Ties with Spore very good, friendly"]. But this piece, though similar in the "reassuring" theme, was actually taken from the interview Abdullah had with The Edge, published in its latest issue that hit the stands over last weekend.
