PM LEE TALKING BIG ABOUT THE FIGHT AGAINST ISIS

THEREALSINGAPORE 22 September 2014 - 2:30pm

During the stopover in Hong Kong, Lee Hsien Loong said that while he is glad the Americans have taken a stand against the Islamic State militant group, Singapore has yet to decide whether or how it will support the United States-led coalition campaign.
