Singapore’s Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong has warned the likelihood of “mishap or miscalculation” across the Taiwan Strait has increased due to the rising “tensions and suspicions” between China and the United States over the Taiwan issue.

“We should be concerned, I don’t think it’s going to war overnight, but it is in a situation where you can have a mishap or a miscalculation and be in a very delicate situation,” Lee said in an interview with Bloomberg Wednesday during the Bloomberg New Economy Forum in Singapore.
