An 85 m buoy tender from Malaysia's Marine Department, which has been a source of tensions between Singapore and Putrajaya since early December 2018, has left waters claimed by both countries as part of their respective maritime territories.

A vessel movement analysis by Jane's via IHS Markit's AISLive portal on 9 January has confirmed that the vessel, MV Polaris , sailed towards the Port of Tanjung Pelepas at the mouth of the Pulai River in the Malaysian state of Johor on 5 January, and has remained there since.
