Minister for Social & Family Development, Tan Chuan-Jin, has warned Singaporeans that our safety here is not a given, and that we may be vulnerable to terror attacks as well.
Commenting on his Facebook about the terror attacks in downtown Indonesia, the Minister said that his thoughts and prayers are for the safety of all in Jakarta.
He also recounted his experience during the Marriott Hotel bombing as such:
“When I was working in our embassy in Jakarta, I experienced the Marriot bombings when I first arrived, and the Australian embassy bombing just before I left. The confusion, anxiety and carnage was palpable in the air. It is not something one would wish to go through. But our friends in Indonesia are resilient and they will weather this and press on.”
Even if we remain safe here in Singapore it cannot be taken as a given, said the Minister. “Terrorist actions can occur. We must stay vigilant and united, come what may,” he added.
