China is the one asking for an explanation from the Singapore government

It seems Singapore has breached customs declaration on sensitive equipment in HK, and has failed to give either explanation or promise of action.

Neither the Singapore government or army have responded well to the HK customs breach, or the 2012 promise of adherence to the one-China policy.

Below is a commentary aired on Phoenix TV, that gives light to why our 9 Terrex are still being held in HK, while America’s submarine vessel was returned within 3 days:

“So what happened to the case of Singapore’s detained armoured vehicles? Why aren’t the shipment returned after a month? This is because we have issued two questions and the Singapore government refuses to answer them, or, gave an unsatisfactory answer. This is what we asked:

First, you have to obey Hong Kong’s legislations and regulations. Why is a military-sensitive ship docking in Hong Kong without any declaration? This is a blatant infringement of the Hong Kong’s custom regulations and you have to give a response, and also a guarantee that this will not be repeated. Have Singapore responded? Not even once. This is only one matter.

The second matter, is that in 2009 and 2012, Singapore promised China to terminate “Operation Starlight” and military cooperation with the Taiwan army. Today is 2016, have you done so? Did you fulfill your promise? It is hence obvious that Singapore did not comply with the “One-China” policy, and we hope to get an appropriate response on this. However, Singapore has been giving us empty talks, they said “we respect the “One-China” policy, but we have been working with the Taiwan army for so long since the 1970s…

…Singapore should know how to assess current affairs in modern context. If they want the armoured vehicles returned, they have better responded to the 2 questions by China. Otherwise, they can forget about getting them back.”

Between 2009-2012, there had been a promise given by the Singapore side to stop training in Taiwan, in adherence to the one-China policy, but it is still ongoing till now.

Chinese Transcript captured by States Times Review:

“那麽新加坡裝甲車這件事又怎麽回事呢?爲什麽到現在都拿不走呢?已經將近一個月了。就是因爲我們提了兩個條件:新加坡的官方軍方一個都沒有回答。或者說我們開出來的題,他們給的不滿意。我們當時就提出來:

第一,你要遵守香港的法律法規。爲什麽這樣敏感的東西到了香港,怎麽不備案?不報官?這是違反香港的法律你得做出明確的解釋,甚至你得做出明確的保障。你做了嗎?還沒有。這是一件事。

另外一件事的話,你早在2009年2012年的時候,你就給我承諾放棄你所謂的“星光計劃”,放棄跟台軍的軍事合作,可是現在2016年,你放棄了嗎?你兌現了嗎?所以你沒有堅持 “一個中國” 的原則,希望你的官方給一個明確的答案。但是新加坡可説是淡而荒置莫而乎的在處理這個問題,他只是說:我們堅持“一個中國” 的原則,但是我們和臺灣軍方的合作這由來已久,上世紀70年來就開始了,所以他想模糊這段歷史。。。

。。。新加坡應該審時度勢,要想把這批裝甲車拿走,一定要給中國給出的兩個問題上給出明確的答案。否則的話,這些車是拿不走的。”
