Singapore says cable leaks won't hurt ties with allies

SINGAPORE -- Singapore expressed confidence Monday that WikiLeaks revelations of disparaging remarks made by some of its most senior diplomats about close allies would not harm “robust” ties.

“Countries base relationships on their own interests and not hearsay or gossip,” the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) said in a statement.

“Singapore has long-standing, robust and positive relationships with all countries in our region. These relationships are built on a strong foundation of shared interests and mutually beneficial cooperation in many areas.”

Confidential U.S. state department documents leaked to Australia's Fairfax media group and published over the weekend said senior Singapore diplomats made scathing comments on leaders of Thailand, Malaysia, India and Japan.
