Singapore and China Sign Pact Boosting Military Cooperation
(The Straits Times) — The armed forces of China and Singapore will have more frequent ministerial-level dialogues and larger-scale military exercises involving the army, navy and air force of both countries.
Defense chiefs from both sides signed an upgraded pact that will also see their troops visit each other under a new Visiting Forces Agreement, and give each other logistical support.
The closer collaboration is built on top of the existing Agreement on Defence Exchanges and Security Cooperation signed in 2008.
Yesterday, Defense Minister Ng Eng Hen and his Chinese counterpart Wei Fenghe inked the pact in Beijing, ahead of China's annual security conference, Xiangshan Forum, which Ng will address tomorrow.
