SINGAPORE, July 13 - Singapore and Malaysia have agreed that their governments should continue to work together to overcome the common challenges posed by the prevailing Covid-19 pandemic.

The statement was issued following Lee's conversation on Sunday with Muhyiddin who had phoned the Singapore leader to congratulate him on the general election victory of his People's Action Party.

In the July 10 election, PAP led by Lee, as the secretary-general of the party, retained power, winning 83 of the 93 seats at stake.

The statement said Lee had a good discussion with Muhyiddin on the strong and positive relationship between the two countries.

Muhyiddin, in a post on his Facebook page Sunday, mentioned the phone call to Lee and said, among others, he is confident that the existing bilateral relations will continue to grow under Lee's premiership.
