Singapore bids its founding father and first prime minister Lee Kuan Yew farewell, The Straits Times reports. South Korean President Park Geun-hye meets with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on the sidelines of the funeral ceremony of Lee Kuan Yew, a sign of thaw in bilateral relations soured by territorial and other history-related issues, a report in The Korea Herald states. Criticisms mount against Thai Prime Minister General Prayut Chan-o-cha's decision to put an end to martial law by invoking Article 44 that gives him absolute power, The Nation writes. Foreigners held at immigration detention facilities for overstaying their visas in Japan are sharing tactics for applying for refugee status to avoid being deported, The Yomiuri Shimbun notes. Countries are rushing to join the new Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank as the application deadline draws near, but the United States remains conspicuously absent, China Daily says.
