SINGAPORE - The Chief of Army of the Malaysian Armed Forces, General (GEN) Datuk Raja Mohamed Affandi bin Raja Mohamed Noor, called on Minister for Defence Dr Ng Eng Hen at the Ministry of Defence on Tuesday. 

This is his 1st visit to Singapore and he will be in town from October 21-22.

GEN Raja Affandi also called on Chief of Army Major-General Ravinder Singh after inspecting a Guard of Honour. Both sides reaffirmed the warm and professional cooperation between the two armies. 

Earlier today, he also visited Headquarters 3rd Singapore Division where he drove a Terrex Infantry Carrier Vehicle.

GEN Raja Affandi's visit underscores the warm and long-standing defence relationship between Singapore and Malaysia, said Mindef in a press statement. The armies of both countries interact regularly in a range of activities, including professional exchanges, the annual bilateral Exercise Semangat Bersatu, and multilateral activities under the ambit of the Five Power Defence Arrangements and ASEAN Defence Ministers' Meeting Plus framework. These interactions have enhanced mutual understanding and friendship between the two armies.
