SINGAPORE - The Commander-in-Chief of the Royal Thai Air Force Air Chief Marshal (ACM) Treetod Sonjance called on Minister for Defence Dr Ng Eng Hen at the Ministry of Defence on Wednesday morning.
ACM Treetod, who is in Singapore on a three-day introductory visit from 16 to 18 December 2014, had earlier called on Chief of Air Force Major-General Hoo Cher Mou after inspecting a Guard of Honour.
As part of his visit on 18 December 2014, ACM Treetod will co-officiate at the opening ceremony of Exercise Cope Tiger, an annual trilateral exercise conducted by the air forces of Singapore, Thailand and the United States, and also visit the Republic of Singapore Air Force's 111 Squadron.
His visit underscores the close and long-standing defence ties between Singapore and Thailand, said Singapore's Defense Ministry.
It added: "Both air forces interact regularly through exercises, professional exchanges and courses.
"These interactions have bolstered the friendship and mutual understanding between the personnel of the two air forces."
