Statement from President Clinton and Secretary Clinton on the Passing of Lee Kuan Yew


Hillary and I mourn the passing of Lee Kuan Yew.  Prime Minister Lee transformed Singapore into one of the world¹s strongest and most sustainable economies.  He also firmly established his country as an important friend and partner of the United States.  After leaving office, he continued to offer brilliant analysis and wise advice to those who sought it.  We will always be grateful for our fascinating conversations with him over the years.  Our thoughts are with Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, his entire family, and all the people of Singapore.
