PM Lee begins US working visit

Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong has begun his visit to the US. 

He arrived in Washington DC today for a four-day working visit.

During his stay in the US capital, Mr Lee will stay at Blair House - the official guesthouse of the US President. 

It is also home to heads of government while they are in Washington.

This is the first time Mr Lee is staying at the 110-room guest house which now flies the Singapore flag during his stay.

The invitation for Mr Lee to stay at the official guesthouse also signifies the strength of relations between Singapore and the US.
