SINGAPORE: Environment Minister Dr Vivian Balakrishnan said Singapore is ready to assist Indonesia to cope with the forest fires and tackle the haze. He was speaking to reporters on the sidelines of a community event Tuesday. "We have a team on standby to help with putting out fires or even with cloud seeding, as well as technical assistance. But really it depends on whether the Indonesians request or require our assistance. We'll just put ourselves on standby," said Dr Balakrishnan. Dr Balakrishnan's comments came as hazy conditions in Singapore stayed in the moderate range. As of 4pm, the 24-hour PSI reading was 57. But Dr Balakrishnan cautioned that the haze may return early next week, should there be changes in wind direction.
