SINGAPORE -- Malaysia and Singapore are preparing for mutual recognition of coronavirus vaccination certificates in an effort to revive travel, the two countries' foreign ministers said on Tuesday.

Malaysia's Hishammuddin Hussein hosted Singapore's Vivian Balakrishnan, who is making the regional rounds this week with a visit to Brunei on Monday and a trip to Indonesia coming up. The two ministers were expected to talk about the worsening crisis in Myanmar, but a joint statement issued after their meeting did not mention the matter.
