SINGAPORE -- Days after the World Economic Forum canceled August's special annual meeting in Singapore, the city-state lost another major international event: the annual Asia Security Summit, known as the Shangri-La Dialogue.

The organizer, the International Institute for Strategic Studies, said it scrapped the event scheduled for early June due to the rising number of COVID-19 cases in the region and the city-state.
