The Ministry of Defence (Mindef) said A Republic of Singapore Air Force F-16 fighter jet had to make an emergency landing at Changi Airport on Tuesday (July 12) night. No one was injured.

The jet which was on a routine training flight made the “precautionary landing” at 8.16 pm.

While the aircraft has been removed from the runway, Mindef did not release more details on the causes including why the emergency landing has to be made in the civilian airport when Changi Airbase is located less than 5 km away.

总理称关注香港局势进展 “示威抗议不可能持续下去”

李显龙总理日前接受彭博社总编辑米思伟(John Micklethwait)采访。针对美国当选总统拜登、中美关系、新加坡疫情和经济等,发表看法。 本月12日,香港民主党议员集体辞职。米思伟特别抛出此议题,试探李显龙对于香港局势的立场。米思伟指多数人认为,上述议员辞职事件,被解读为对香港自由的打压。 “新加坡作为民主国家,你又如何看待香港目前的情况呢?”米思伟如是问道。 李显龙则指新加坡政府密切关注香港局势进展,认为“一些事将发生,是无可避免的”,他指示威和抗议行为不可能无限持续下去,也不可能延续到2047年(一国两制期限结束)。 他也指,中国政府已明确表态,透过人民代表大会立法,而香港政府也已贯彻执行这些新条例。 人大常委会上周三(11日)通过一项涉港决定,内容涉及立法会议员的资格问题,不符合资格者,将由港府宣布取消议席;港府随后依据有关决定,宣布取消四名泛民议员的资格。 彭博社报导指上述条例形同中国“扼杀异议”的最新举措,也引发人们对香港未来的担忧,包括会否引来美国制裁香港或中国政府高层。 不过,李显龙则指希望中国政府能在不影响国际社会的信心下,解决香港问题,同时维持香港体制,作为中国有价值、繁荣区域的一部分。 李显龙认为,香港不会回到原来状态,但希望她能适应“新局势”,建设可持续发展的未来,让港人安居乐业、经济重回正轨。
