Singapore and Brunei say they welcome the decades of "warm personal ties" between the two neighbours, as Bruneian Prince 'Abdul Malik ibni Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Mu'izzaddin Waddaulah visits Singapore this week.

Accompanied by his wife, Yang Amat Mulia Pengiran Anak Isteri Pengiran Raabi'atul 'Adawiyyah, Prince 'Abdul Malik was at the Istana on Tuesday (Aug 16) where he was hosted to tea by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and his wife, Madam Ho Ching, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement on Thursday.

Prince 'Abdul Malik also attended a dinner with Deputy Prime Minister and Coordinating Minister for National Security Teo Chee Hean, with whom he shared views on youth exchanges, security-related developments and reaffirmed the need for continued cooperation in these areas.

During their five-day visit, the royal couple toured the city, including Gardens by the Bay and the Police Operations Command Centre as part of the Prince's engagements with the Ministry of Home Affairs.

Prince 'Abdul Malik will return to Brunei tomorrow (Aug 19).
