USPACFLT Commander Calls on Minister for Defence

USPACFLT Commander Calls on Minister for Defence

The Commander of the United States Pacific Fleet (USPACFLT), Admiral (ADM) Cecil D. Haney, called on Minister for Defence Dr Ng Eng Hen at the Ministry of Defence this afternoon. ADM Haney, who is in Singapore from 18 to 21 Mar 2012 for his introductory visit, also called on Chief of Defence Force Lieutenant-General Neo Kian Hong and Chief of Navy Rear Admiral Ng Chee Peng earlier today after inspecting a Guard of Honour.

As part of his programme, ADM Haney will visit Sembawang Air Base this afternoon and Changi Naval Base tomorrow.

ADM Haney’s visit underscores the long-standing and excellent defence relations between Singapore and the United States, and between both navies. The RSN and US PACFLT interact regularly through a wide range of activities, including visits, bilateral and multilateral exercises, and professional exchanges. These interactions have enhanced the interoperability between the two navies as well as the professional rapport and mutual understanding between their personnel.
