Indonesia, Singapore to enhance military cooperation

  • Indonesian Defence Minister Prabowo Subianto on 27 Feb said that his country fully supports the strengthening of its close military cooperation with Singapore that has been built based on the principles of equality, mutual benefit and full respect for each country’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, as well as international laws.
  • Subianto made the statement during his meeting with Singapore’s Chief of Defence Force Lieutenant-General Melvyn Ong, during which the two sides discussed Indonesia-Singapore military cooperation in fields and measures to promote their cooperation relationship.
  • With the implementation of the Indonesia-Singapore Defence Cooperation Agreement (DCA), the interaction and bilateral defence cooperation relationship will be further promoted, thereby helping to enhance the bilateral defence cooperation and defence human resources of both countries.
  • According to Subianto, education is one of the priorities of defence cooperation between the two countries. In addition, the two countries will soon establish an annual defence cooperation forum, including a military subcommittee to promote cooperation in this field.
