The Singapore government has appointed Indian-origin S. Chandra Das, a former member of parliament and diplomat, as Singapore’s non-resident high commissioner to Sri Lanka, a media report said on Thursday.

Das served as Singapore’s ambassador to the Republic of Turkey, resident in Singapore from 2006 to 2015. He had also previously served as Singapore’s trade representative to the former Soviet Union from 1970 to 1972 and also as member of parliament from 1980 to 1996, The Straits Times reported. 

He will assume his new position pending his presentation of credentials to Sri Lanka, the ministry of foreign affairs said in a statement.

Das was conferred the Distinguished Service (Star) Award by the National Trades Union Congress in 2005.
