KUALA LUMPUR - FORMER prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad says he does not see any reason for Singapore's Minister Mentor Lee Kuan Yew to meet with him.
He was asked by reporters on the possibility of him meeting Mr Lee , who is in the country for an eight-day visit.
'I don't see why he would request to see me - I am a nobody,' he told reporters when pressed further on should there be a request from Mr Lee to see him.
Dr Mahathir met reporters after launching Sapura Crest Petroleum Bhd's new state-of-the-art Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) called the Typhoon, which is capable of deep-water operations, during the Oil and Gas Asia 2009 Exhibition at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre yesterday.
He was also asked to comment on the meeting between Mr Lee and opposition leaders and the advice he gave to them.
'Lee Kuan Yew has a lot of experience. Our politicians know nothing. That is why we have to learn from Singapore. Singapore is a great country, they invest so much money,' he said.
On the third bridge issue, Dr Mahathir said: 'If we give sand, then we can get the bridge.' -- BERNAMA
