Singapore: The Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) will phase out training in Brunei from August to pre-pandemic levels, the Ministry of Defense (MINDEF) said on Saturday (July 16).
Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong visited the SAF forces in Temburong, Brunei on Friday afternoon, the ministry said in a news release.
Mr Lee was accompanied by Rear Admiral David Neo, who met with an Army trainer.
In a Facebook post on Saturday, Lee wrote:
“I am delighted to be motivated and looking forward to resuming training. I hope to have a meaningful and safe time in Brunei.”
The Ministry of Defense said Singapore and Brunei have a close and long-standing defense relationship.
“In addition to the valuable jungle training that the SAF conducts in Brunei, the SAF and the Royal Brunei Armed Forces interact through frequent bilateral exercises, expert exchanges, visits and mutual attendance of courses,” the Ministry of Defense said. I am saying.
“These exchanges have increased professionalism and strengthened the relationship between the two troops.”
Earlier this year, commanders of the Royal Brunei Navy, the Royal Brunei Air Force, and the Royal Brunei Air Force introduced Singapore.
