RMAF Chief Made Introductory Visit To Singapore

The Chief of the Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF) General (GEN) Tan Sri Dato’ Sri Mohd Asghar Khan bin Goriman Khan, called on Singapore Minister for Defence Dr Ng Eng Hen this afternoon. During their meeting, Dr Ng and GEN Asghar reaffirmed the importance of maintaining strong ties between the Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) and the RMAF, and discussed how to strengthen defence cooperation to deal with common security challenges in the region.

GEN Asghar, who is in Singapore for his introductory visit from 22 to 23 August 2023, also called on Singapore Chief of Defence Force Vice Admiral Aaron Beng and Singapore Chief of Air Force Major-General Kelvin Khong after inspecting a Guard of Honour at the Ministry of Defence. As part of his visit, GEN Asghar was also hosted to a visit at Changi Air Base (East) yesterday, where he viewed a static display of the F-15SG fighter aircraft.

GEN Asghar’s visit underscores the warm and long-standing bilateral defence relationship between Singapore and Malaysia. The RSAF and the RMAF have enhanced mutual understanding and professional ties over the years through professional exchanges, visits, courses, fighter landaways, and bilateral Search-and-Rescue exercises such as SAREX MALSING. Both Air Forces also cooperate on multilateral platforms such as the Five Power Defence Arrangements, which play an important role in the regional security architecture.
