The Singapore government recently said that Malaysia is yet to reply to its note on the announced cancelation of the HSR and also that it would seek compensation on costs incurred should be project should the project be shelved.

“Decisions are not made so easily. When we announce something, the market reacts negatively,” he added.

“What we are trying to do is to run the country well financially. They should appreciate that,” he said.
