KOTA KINABALU - Singapore's Deputy Prime Minister Teo Chee Hean met with Sabah Chief Minister Mohd Shafie Apdal on Saturday (Sept 8) in the state capital Kota Kinabalu, in the final leg of his visit to Malaysia.

He was hosted to dinner by Datuk Seri Shafie on Friday evening and they met again for breakfast on Saturday.

"They reaffirmed the strong ties between Singapore and Sabah, and explored ways to strengthen cooperation in common areas of interest, particularly in tourism and education," said a statement from the Prime Minister's Office.

Mr Teo, who is also Coordinating Minister for National Security, also called on Sabah's Head of State, Tun Juhar Mahiruddin.

Mr Teo also visited the Kota Kinabalu Naval Base.
