PM Lee explains why Japanese PM Abe paid his last respects to S R Nathan

“Singapore’s former president, who passed away on August 22nd, was a person extremely knowledgeable about Japan. On the way to attend the TIDAC Summit in Nairobi, Kenya, I stopped over in Singapore and represented Japan in offering condolences. Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and his wife greeted me. In 2009 as a state guest to Japan, he (Mr Nathan) visited Hiroshima where he met the victims of the atomic bomb as a foreign head of state for the first time. I told his wife that this is something Japanese people will never forget.”
