SINGAPORE -The Commander of the Royal Brunei Navy (RBN) First Admiral (FADM) Dato Seri Pahlawan Abdul Aziz Haji Mohammad Tamit called on Minister for Defence Dr Ng Eng Hen at the Ministry of Defence on Wednesday morning.

FADM Dato Aziz is in Singapore for his introductory visit from Sept 30 to Oct 2. He also called on Chief of Navy Rear-Admiral Lai Chung Han and inspected a Guard of Honour.

As part of his visit, FADM Dato Aziz will visit the Multinational Operations and Exercise Centre, the Information Fusion Centre, the Naval Wargaming and Simulation Centre and the Full Mission Ship-handling Simulator at Changi Naval Base, Mindef said in a statement on Wednesday.

The visit by FADM Dato Aziz underscores the excellent and long-standing defence relationship between Singapore and Brunei, Mindef said.

The Republic of Singapore Navy (RSN) and RBN interact frequently through a wide range of activities, including professional exchanges.

In June 2014, the two navies conducted the flagship bilateral Exercise Pelican while sailing-in-company to Hawaii for the first time to participate in the multilateral Rim of the Pacific naval exercise. These interactions have strengthened the camaraderie and friendship between personnel of the two navies, Mindef said in its statement.
