Joint Statement by the United States of America and the Republic of Singapore

  • 0

1. President of the United States of America Donald J. Trump hosted Prime Minister of the Republic of Singapore Lee Hsien Loong at the White House on October 23, 2017.  They affirmed the strong and enduring partnership between the two countries based on mutually beneficial cooperation, especially in the economic, defense, security, and people-to-people spheres.   2. The two leaders noted the important role that the bilateral United States-Singapore Free Trade Agreement (FTA) has played in strengthening the robust economic relations between the United States and Singapore and in expanding trade, enhancing prosperity, and promoting broader relations for the benefit of both countries.  Bilateral trade has almost doubled from pre-FTA levels to reach more than $68 billion in 2016, with a consistent trade surplus for the United States.  The United States is the largest foreign investor in Singapore, and American companies use Singapore as a regional hub for their activities.  Conversely, Singapore is among the largest investors from Asia in the United States.  Both leaders noted the success of the United States-Singapore FTA, which is reviewed regularly to evaluate performance and resolve bilateral issues. 3. The leaders highlighted the strong commercial relationship between the two countries, demonstrated by the signing for the purchase of 39 Boeing wide-body aircraft by Singapore Airlines (SIA), valued at $13.8 billion.  The order will expand and modernize SIA’s fleet to support the increasing demand of business and tourism-related travels, while rewarding innovation and creating jobs in the United States.  They acknowledged the expanded commercial cooperation achieved under the 2016 Memorandum of Understanding on e-Commerce, Smart Cities, Infrastructure and Financial Technology (FinTech).   4. The two leaders affirmed their close and long-standing defense ties as a cornerstone of bilateral relations.  Singapore hosts the rotational deployment of United States military aircraft and U.S. Navy ships to conduct a variety of maritime patrol activities to counter piracy and terrorism, as well as provide humanitarian assistance and disaster relief in the region.  Singapore trains approximately 1,000 military personnel in the United States each year, including those stationed at training detachments for the Republic of Singapore Air Force’s F-15SG and F-16C/D fighter aircraft, CH-47 Chinook and AH-64 Apache helicopters, and the Singapore Army’s High Mobility Artillery Rocket System.  Singapore has signed more than $5.8 billion worth of defense contracts with U.S. companies in the past three years, and the Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) recently received a delivery of F-15SG fighter jets from Boeing.  President Trump thanked Prime Minister Lee for the deployment of four of Singapore’s Chinook helicopters to assist in Hurricane Harvey relief operations in Texas, and Singapore’s search-and-rescue assistance following the August USS John S. McCain tragedy.  5. Both leaders expressed deep concern about the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea’s (DPRK) continued development of its unlawful nuclear and ballistic missile programs, which pose a grave threat to international peace and security.  They condemned the DPRK’s missile launches and nuclear tests, which are in clear violation of UN Security Council Resolutions (UNSCRs).  The leaders reaffirmed their commitment to fully implement the DPRK UNSCRs and to consider additional measures to compel the DPRK regime to engage in meaningful dialogue about a different future. 6. The two leaders recognized the grave threat posed by the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction and their means of delivery, and affirmed that urgent action is needed to address this danger.  Both sides welcomed Singapore’s efforts in non-proliferation and strategic trade control initiatives, such as through its trial of the World Customs Organization’s Cargo Targeting System to strengthen global supply chain security, and decided to consider exploring new areas of cooperation to prevent the global transportation sector from being abused by proliferators.  The United States also welcomed Singapore’s continued support for the Proliferation Security Initiative (PSI), such as Singapore’s hosting of the PSI exercise Deep Sabre in late 2016, and the PSI Operational Expert Groups meeting in August 2017. 7. The two leaders pledged to strengthen cooperation to counter the threat of ISIS and reaffirmed the need for all countries to stand shoulder-to-shoulder against the common scourge of global terrorism.  They welcomed the upcoming bilateral Law Enforcement and Homeland Security and Safety Cooperation Dialogue.  As a partner in the fight against ISIS and the first and only Asian country to have contributed both assets and personnel to the Global Coalition to Defeat ISIS, President Trump welcomed Singapore’s commitment to extend its existing contributions to the Coalition, including the deployment of a medical task force in Iraq, KC-135R tanker aircraft, and an Imagery Analysis Team.   8. Recognizing the transboundary nature of cybersecurity threats, the two leaders affirmed the progress made under the 2016 Memorandum of Understanding on Cybersecurity Cooperation.  Both countries affirmed their commitment to work together during Singapore’s 2018 Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Chairmanship to secure the digital economy as a key engine for future economic growth.   9. The two leaders supported expanding economic ties through closer cooperation on bilateral tax issues and welcomed continued progress towards the signing of a tax information exchange agreement and a reciprocal intergovernmental agreement to implement the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act.  The negotiations have been substantially completed, and both sides are committed to sign the two agreements as soon as possible, with the aim of doing so by the end of the year.  The leaders noted the two countries would continue discussions on whether to negotiate an Avoidance of Double Taxation Agreement in the future, taking into account double taxation with respect to both American investments in Singapore and Singaporean investments in the United States and our mutual interest in avoiding base erosion and profit shifting by multinationals. 10. Both leaders affirmed the strong bonds of friendship and cooperation between the peoples of the two countries.  They welcomed the continuation of the United States-Singapore Summer Exchange Scholarship Program to foster linkages and new ideas for cooperation between the next generation of young leaders.  The two leaders recognized the success of the Young Southeast Asian Leaders Initiative (YSEALI) and looked forward to YSEALI events in the future.   11. Both leaders noted concerns about developments in the South China Sea (SCS). They reaffirmed the importance of safeguarding peace and stability, and they reiterated their commitment to upholding freedoms of navigation and overflight, and other lawful uses of the sea.  Consonant with the Sunnylands Declaration, both leaders underscored the importance of the peaceful resolution of disputes, including full respect for legal and diplomatic processes, in accordance with universally recognized principles of international law and the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea.  They also reiterated their support for the expeditious conclusion of an effective and binding Code of Conduct in the SCS.   12. The two leaders expressed concern about the humanitarian situation in Rakhine State and on the border between Myanmar and Bangladesh.  Both leaders called for the expeditious delivery of humanitarian assistance to all affected communities, and urged the government of Myanmar to end the violence, ensure the safe, voluntary and dignified repatriation, resettlement, and rehabilitation of displaced persons, and implement in the shortest time possible the recommendations of the Advisory Commission on Rakhine State.  They expressed their support for ASEAN's role in working with the government of Myanmar to provide humanitarian assistance to all affected communities. 13. The two leaders reaffirmed their commitment to ASEAN centrality and the importance of strengthening the regional architecture to effectively address common transnational challenges such as maritime security, cybersecurity, and countering violent extremism.  Both sides highlighted the importance of the U.S.-ASEAN strategic partnership and the principles underpinning this relationship, as outlined in the 2016 Sunnylands Declaration.  They welcomed the 50th anniversary of ASEAN’s founding and the 40th anniversary of United States-ASEAN relations and committed to continuing support for joint contributions to the Third Country Training Program aimed at enhancing connectivity and regional resilience.  President Trump looks forward to attending the November multilateral summits in Southeast Asia and offered his full support for Singapore’s ASEAN Chairmanship in 2018.   14. President Trump warmly accepted Prime Minister Lee’s invitation to visit Singapore in 2018, and they both recognized Singapore’s steadfast partnership on issues of mutual interest and shared principles.  Singapore has been an anchor for the presence of the United States in the Indo-Pacific, underpinning regional peace and prosperity for the common benefit of the region and the United States.

Remarks by President Trump and Prime Minister Lee of Singapore in Joint Statements

Rose Garden 1:51 P.M. EDT PRESIDENT TRUMP:  Thank you very much.  Please sit.  I'm honored to welcome Prime Minister Lee of Singapore to the White House today.  Thank you, Mr. Prime Minister. PRIME MINISTER LEE:  Thank you, Mr. President. PRESIDENT TRUMP:  I want to thank you for visiting us, and your entire group of very, very talented people that we're dealing with.  Our friendship has never been stronger than it is right now.   Singapore is one of our closest strategic partners in Asia.  The United States is proud of the deep and enduring partnership we have built since Singapore gained its independence more than half-a-century ago.  Singapore’s rapid development from a poor island nation to an economic powerhouse, under the leadership of the Prime Minister’s great father -- he was a great man; he really was a great man -- has been one of the incredible economic and political achievements of the past 50 years. Singapore’s strong commitment to the rule of law, to international [intellectual] property protections, and to the principles of fair and reciprocal -- one of my favorite words when it comes to trade -- has made the country a magnet for business.  Today, over 4,000 American companies are operating in Singapore, and we have a very large trading relationship with Singapore. Earlier today, the Prime Minister and I witnessed a contract signing between Singapore Airlines -- a great airline -- and Boeing worth more than $13.8 billion.  I want to thank the Singaporean people for their faith in the American engineering and American workers.  And our American workers deliver the best product, by far.  Our robust partnership extends far beyond economic cooperation and trade.   Mr. Prime Minister, as your father rightly noted, “The development of the economy is very important, but equally important is the development of the nature of our society.”  So true. The United States and Singapore share a profound belief in a society built on a foundation of law.  A nation ruled by law provides the greatest security for the rights of citizens and the best path to shared and lasting prosperity.  Both the United States and Singapore understand the unmatched power of private enterprise to uplift the human condition.  These values have made our societies stronger, sustained our partnership through the Cold War, and laid a critical foundation for our lasting relationship today.  Our common values and interests have led to a vital security relationship.  Throughout Southeast Asia, the United States and Singapore are currently working to enhance the capacity of law enforcement, fight terrorism, and bolster cyber defenses.  Our two nations also share an unwavering commitment to countering the North Korean threat and promoting freedom of navigation in the South China Sea.  Singapore was the first Southeast Asian nation to join the coalition to defeat ISIS.  That was very far thinking.  You were there before most.  More than 1,000 of its military personnel train here in the United States every single year.  When Hurricane Harvey struck our Gulf Coast in late August, Singapore deployed its own helicopters to help transport personnel and critical resources to areas in need.  And the Prime Minister told me that and called me, and made that request himself.  It was a great help, and we want to thank you very much -- the use of your helicopters.   When the American Navy destroyer, the USS John McCain, suffered a collision at the sea, Singapore came to our immediate assistance.  On behalf of all Americans, I want to thank the Prime Minister and the people of Singapore for their support, which has been tremendous, and for their friendship. In a few weeks, I will attend the U.S.-ASEAN Summit in the Philippines, where we will celebrate the 40th anniversary of U.S.-ASEAN relations.  I look forward to continuing our discussions at this year’s summit and to seeing the great things Singapore will accomplish as ASEAN chair in 2018.  In other words, this great gathering will take place in Singapore in 2018.  Mr. Prime Minister, thank you for your continuing partnership and leadership.  The U.S.-Singapore relationship has made both of our people far more prosperous and secure, and our values have made us longstanding friends.  We are fortunate to have such a wonderful and loyal partner.  Thank you very much. PRIME MINISTER LEE:  Thank you, Mr. President.  (Applause.) Mr. President, ladies and gentlemen, I'd like to thank President Trump for his very warm hospitality.  I'm very happy to visit him in Washington following our first meeting, which was at the G20 Summit in Hamburg in July. We had a wide-ranging exchange in the Oval Office and then over lunch.  We reaffirmed the robust and enduring partnership between Singapore and the United States over the last 51 years.  It's a deep and wide relationship with substantial cooperation in economic, defense, and security spheres.  And we also discussed what more we could do to take it forward. On the economic front, the U.S. is an important partner for many countries in Asia, just as Asia is an important economic partner for the United States. Singapore is a small country -- we're just 5.5 million -- but we have sizable investments and trade with the U.S., and these continue to grow.  For example, we are the second largest Asian investor in the U.S., with more than 70 billion U.S. dollars in stock investments, and our total trade in goods and services amounted to more than $68 billion last year. The U.S. has consistently run a substantial trade surplus with Singapore.  Last year, it stood at $18 billion.  In other words, America exported $43 billion of goods and services to Singapore. And on a per capita basis, we must be one of the highest-buying American customers in the world -- $7,500 worth of American goods and services yearly:  iPhones, pharmaceutical products, tires, golf clubs, financial and consultancy services.  I mean the sticks, not the associations.  (Laughter.)  And I discovered recently, looking at my sports shoes, at my New Balance shoes, which are very good -- are made in the U.S., probably in New England. And of course, we buy Boeing jets.  President Trump and I just witnessed a signing between Singapore Airlines and Boeing for SIA to purchase 39 Boeing aircraft worth 13.8 billion U.S. dollars.  It's a win-win for both sides.  It will further modernize SIA's fleet and will also support many American jobs. Our defense ties are very strong.  Singapore supports a military presence in Asia.  Since 1990, we have hosted USAF and Navy aircraft and ships on rotational deployments.  We thank the U.S. for hosting more than 1,000 Singapore military personnel each year in training detachments in the United States.   We have forces at Luke Air Force Base in Phoenix and in Marana, also in Arizona; at Mountain Home Air Base in Idaho; at Grand Prairie in Texas; and in Fort Sill, Oklahoma, where I spent three months many years ago. In fact, our Chinooks and military personnel in Grand Prairie were deployed to assist in the Hurricane Harvey disaster relief operations, and we are glad to have been of some help to our very gracious hosts. We have a close partnership, too, on security cooperation, including transnational security, terrorism, and cybersecurity.  Singapore has lent early and consistent support to the defeat- ISIS coalition.  We were one of the first countries to participate and are still the only Asian country to have contributed both military assets and personnel.  And as I told President Trump when we met, Singapore will extend our existing deployment to the operation into 2018 for an additional year. President Trump and I naturally discussed the situation on the Korean Peninsula.  We strongly oppose the nuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, as it affects the peace and stability of the region. And like the U.S., we condemn the DPRK's dangerous provocations.  These pose a serious threat to regional and international peace and stability.  I shared with President Trump what Singapore has done to pressure and to isolate the DPRK, going beyond U.N. Security Council resolutions.  But there is no quick and easy solution.  Pressure is necessary but so is dialogue.  The U.S. will need to work with others, including China, South Korea, and Japan, and Russia to resolve the issue. President Trump will be visiting China in a few weeks' time as part of his first visit to Asia.  Singapore, like many other countries, watched your relations with China very closely.  It's the most important bilateral relationship in the world.   China is the U.S.'s third largest export market for both goods and services; for agricultural exports, it's the second largest.  They buy soybeans, grains, and cotton, as well as farming machinery.  And I am quite sure that as their incomes go up, they will buy more and more good American beef. I express my hope that the U.S. will be able to maintain a stable and constructive relationship with China, engaging each other at the highest levels, building trust, establishing institutional mechanisms.   Good U.S.-China relations will benefit the region and the world.  They will enable countries in the Asia Pacific, including America and China themselves, to enjoy regional stability, peace, and prosperity.  Finally, I look forward to seeing President Trump again in Vietnam and the Philippines next month to attend the APEC and ASEAN and East Asia Summit meetings.  His presence in Asia will mean a lot to America's many friends and allies in the region, and it will open doors and develop markets for U.S. exporters and investors.   Although the President is not visiting Singapore this time around, I have invited him to visit Singapore at the earliest opportunity, and I'm very glad that he has accepted.  Singapore will be the ASEAN chair next year, and we hope to strengthen our ties -- ASEAN's ties -- with the United States and further ASEAN-U.S. cooperation.  Thank you very much.  PRESIDENT TRUMP:  Thank you very much, everybody. END                2:03 P.M. EDT
