SINGAPORE, Dec. 21 (UPI) -- Singapore Minister Mentor Lee Kuan Yew says 2005 will be a turning point in the war against terror.

Speaking during a Foreign Correspondents' Association dinner Monday night, Lee said the next four years for U.S. President George Bush could bring the best of times if elections in Iraq and the situation in Israel and Palestine turn out well, ChannelNews Asia reported.

Lee also touched on the political and economic expectations for Southeast Asia, emphasizing the omens are good with the election of U.S., Malaysian and Indonesian leaders whose policies will foster stability and growth.
