The Commander-in-Chief of the Royal Thai Navy (RTN) Admiral (ADM) Kraisorn Chansuvanich is in Singapore for an introductory visit. He called on Second Minister for Defence Mr Chan Chun Sing Tuesday afternoon.
As part of his visit, he will also call on Chief of Navy Rear-Admiral Lai Chung Han and Chief of Defence Force Lieutenant-General Ng Chee Meng as well as inspect a Guard-of-Honour contingent at the Ministry of Defence tomorrow.
ADM Kraisorn's visit is his first since assuming his appointment in October 2014. His visit highlights the close and long-standing defence relations between Singapore and Thailand.
The Republic of Singapore Navy and the RTN interact regularly through exercises, visits, cross-attendance of courses and other professional exchanges. These interactions have enhanced and deepened the mutual understanding and friendship between the two navies.
