S’pore FM meets Aleqa

Singaporean foreign minister K. Shanmugam met with Greenland’s PM Aleqa Hammond last week on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly (S’pore MFA, Lianhe Zaobao). Ms Hammond spoke “positively” of Singapore’s “contributions to Arctic affairs” as Arctic Council permanent observer, which it has been since 2013.

Back in Greenland, Hammond is facing accusations she spent some $18k from public funds to pay for private expenses for her and family members. She’s now saying she wants to take leave from office.

I haven’t written anything about Singapore and the Arctic, but others have, e.g. Aki Tonami and Mia Bennett.
