"Commemorative marker of Deng Xiaoping unveiled in Singapore"

SINGAPORE - In celebration of the 20th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Singapore and China, a dedicated marker to commemorate late Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping was unveiled here on Sunday. The marker, which sits beside the Singapore River, was unveiled by Singapore Minister Mentor Lee Kuan Yew and Chinese Vice-President Xi Jinping, who is here on a three-day official visit. - China Daily

If it is symbolic to put a sculpture of another country's leader in celebrating Singapore's diplomatic relations with the former, then i suppose there should also be a similar sculture of perhaps Malaysian former Prime Minister 'Tunku Abdul Rahman Al-Haj', the former India Prime Minister 'Indira Priyadarshini Gandhi', the former British Prime Minister 'Margaret Thatcher' or other leaders whom Singapore has 'diplomatic relations' with over '20 years'. The absence of such treatment toward the rest of the countries' leaders, again reflected the extent to which Singapore is so eager to show her people and others the 'significance' of the nation's contribution and the important role played by the chinese. This is just another example or indicator among others which have been written in this site to support such view.
