The row between the top bosses at the Singapore International Festival of Arts appears to have been defused.

In the latest press statement from the Festival sent today, it said that festival director Ong Keng Sen and chief executive Lee Chor Lin have "agreed on a path forward, focusing on the shared goal of the success of the Festival".

Mr Ong and Ms Lee, both 50, will continue to work on the Festival, it said.

This is the latest development in the stand-off which erupted on Tuesday, when Mr Ong sent an e-mail to Ms Lee, copied to the media and key arts policy makers, alleging that she kept him out of the loop in the production of two festival brochures.
