SINGAPORE - Malaysia's relations with Singapore would benefit from Barisan Nasional coalition's return to power at the federal level, said Malaysian High Commissioner to Singapore Datuk Md Hussin Nayan.

"I noted a great sense of relief amongst the many friends of Malaysia in Singapore, now that the so-called "uncertainty" was really unfounded,'' he was quoted as saying by Bernama news agency on Tuesday.

"The election results indicate, once again, that the Malaysian resolve towards creating a stable, peaceful and economically progressive nation, is as strong and unstoppable," he said.

"Once the new Malaysian Government is formed, the two governments can be accepted to proceed with planned collaborative projects to enhance transport infrastructural facilities" and strengthen industrial cooperation between the two countries, he added.

The High Commissioner also told Bernama that Malaysia and Singapore enjoy a long-standing, friendly and multi-faceted relationship.

Both countries are in the final stages of their plan to build a rapid transport system (RTS) linking the republic and the state of Johor that will enhance people-to-people links.

Both countries have also agreed to build a 300-km High Speed Rail linking Singapore and Kuala Lumpur.
