Basic Tenets of Singapore Foreign Policy

Retired Singaporean Diplomat and Minister noted in one of his interviews, the basic tenets of Singaporean Foreign Policy as:

Make maximum friends and minimum enemies or no enemies. Be of service to as many as you can be of service to....You don't want to go out of your way to offend or upset any country. But from time to time, a situation arises where you have to advance your interest, be consistent and principled.

Pretty good basics to have as one's personal policy, if you ask me.
