Dr Tony Tan Keng Yam
President of the Republic of Singapore
Budapest, 23rd March 2015
I have learned with deep sorrow of the passing away of Mr Lee Kuan Yew, former prime minister and founding father of modern Singapore.
His Excellency Lee Kuan Yew was a remarkable political leader and statesman, who will be remembered all over the world for his legacy of laying down the foundations of today’s Singapore, as well as his emblematic political vision.
On behalf of the people of Hungary and that of my own, I hereby express my heartfelt condolences and deepest sympathies to Your Excellency and to the people of the Republic of Singapore.
President of the Republic
