"Do not test us".I like it when our leaders talk big. Singapore's Foreign Minister better stand up and listen. We may have lost Pulau Batu Putih to Singapore at the International Court of Justice, but we are not about to give away anything else."If you want to negotiate, lets negotiate. There is no need to encroach, no need to test the market or our waters." - Rais Yatim on Singapore Senior Minister of State Balaji Sadasivan's remarks about the republic wanting to claim territorial waters and Exclusive Economic Zone around Pedra Branca.
I think what Rais means is that if Singapore continues with this kind of talk, it's war. And I don't mean we are going to war, ok?
Above is a hastily-sketched map by an expert on the EEZ/territorial water subject. I'll get it properly and graphically done one day. Click here for the larger, Facebook version.
