Singapore PM on US-China relationship: We must choose sides #cnbc

Singaporean Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong turned heads Tuesday when video of a blunt commentary on his nation`s U.S. and China relationships was posted online. "If America, China relations become very difficult, our position becomes tougher because then we will be coerced to choose between being friends with America and being friends with China," he said. "Unless you focus on this relationship ? both the win-win aspects as well as the areas where you`re in contention ? it can go wrong," he added. Speaking to the BBC, the normally diplomatic Lee hinted that his country`s loyalties to both China and the United States could one day be tested. Right now we are friends with both ? it`s not that we don`t have issues with either, but we are generally friends with both, and the relationships are in good working order" Lee said.
