英语新闻:新加坡前总理李光耀去世

Singapore former PM Lee Kuan Yew passes away at age of 91
英语新闻:新加坡前总理李光耀凌晨去世


据新加坡总理公署23日公告,新加坡前总理李光耀因病于当天凌晨3时18分去世,享年91岁。

事迹
李光耀当政时期,新加坡用了不到40年时间,从一个缺乏经济禀赋和安全保证的弹丸之地,跃升为著名的“亚洲四小龙”之一,并进入发达国家之列。其发展轨迹,被总结为新加坡模式。

关系
在对华关系上,李光耀的平衡外交表现得淋漓尽致。身为华人,李光耀对中国是相当了解的。他数十次访华,为中新关系的发展倾注了大量心血,因此被称为“中国的老朋友”。他认为,中国崛起不可阻挡。他认定,海峡两岸统一只是时间上的问题。与此同时,人们又注意到,随着中国国力不断增强,李光耀表态希望美国能够继续出面制衡中国,还告诫日本、印度等国,对中国成为强国提高警惕。

影响
死亡是一种巨大的平衡,对李光耀来说也是如此。死亡如期而至,我们失去了一位伟大的人物,也将拥有巨大的契机。虽然形势要求李光耀的后继者进行变革,新加坡模式也不可能完全适用于其他国家,但毫无疑问,新加坡模式是李光耀留给后人的最大政治财产,其中蕴含的思想和政治价值,仍将在今后显现。
 

SINGAPORE, March 23 -- Lee Kuan Yew, former prime minister of Singapore, died at 3:18 am on Monday at the age of 91, according to a statement released by the Prime Minister's Office ( PMO) on Monday.

Lee passed away "peacefully", the statement said.


新加坡前总理李光耀的生平

(http://english.cntv.cn/2015/03/23/VIDE1427059443718779.shtml)


Lee had been in hospital for severe pneumonia since Feb. 5. PMO said his condition was "slightly improved" on Feb. 28, but worsened due to an infection on March 17. His condition had hence remained "critically ill" until PMO issued a statement at noon on Saturday, saying that his condition had again "worsened".

His ill health had prevented him from attending public and constituency events in recent months. His latest appearances were at the People's Action Party's 60th anniversary celebrations in November last year and his constituency's Tree Planting Day earlier the same month.




As a MP for Tanjong Pagar GRC (Group Representation Constituency), he also attended Tanjong Pagar GRC's National Day dinner in August 2014.

Lee, also known as Singapore's founding father, was born in September 1923. He served as the prime minister of Singapore from 1959 to 1990, and later served as a senior minister and minister mentor after stepping down from the first chair. (Xinhua)
