“Both sides will announce further details on the HSR project through a joint statement in due course.”

They also reaffirmed the “strong bilateral relations between the two countries covering many areas of cooperation and the sincere desire to further strengthen these relations for mutual benefit”.

It was recently reported that Malaysia may proceed with the HSR project without the participation of Singapore by having the rail line end at Johor Bahru.

Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department (Economy) Datuk Seri Mustapa Mohamed, however, said that the two countries are still in talks regarding Malaysia’s proposals to improve the project.

He added that an announcement will be made after reaching a decision on the matter.
