Malaysia, a willing to further discuss 1962 water pact
SINGAPORE (Nov 13): Singapore and Malaysia have expressed their willingness to have further discussions to better understand each other’s position on the 1962 Water Agreement, according to the republic’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA).

SINGAPORE (Dec 18): Just months ago, Malaysian stocks were among Asia’s highlights. Now they’re heading for some of the biggest monthly losses in the region.
The nation filing criminal charges against Goldman Sachs Group Inc for its role in the 1MDB scandal was the latest to hit the market, whose benchmark equity gauge is heading for a two-year low and its longest monthly losing streak in a decade. Adding to investor concerns are the slide in oil prices, government spending cuts and the ongoing trade tension between the US and China.
