Chief of Staff of the Indonesian Air Force (TNI AU), Air Chief Marshal (ACM)
Fadjar Prasetyo, called on Minister for Defence Dr Ng Eng Hen at the Ministry
of Defence (MINDEF) this morning. During their meeting, Dr Ng and ACM Fadjar
reaffirmed defence ties and discussed efforts to enhance cooperation in areas
of mutual interest.
Fadjar, who is in Singapore from 2 to 4 January 2022 for his introductory visit,
also called on Chief of Defence Force Lieutenant-General Melvyn Ong and Chief
of Air Force Major-General Kelvin Khong after inspecting the Guard of Honour at
MINDEF. As part of his visit, ACM Fadjar visited Sembawang Air Base and Changi
Air Base (East) yesterday, where he took a familiarisation flight on board a
Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) H225M Medium Lift Helicopter and viewed
a static display of the A330 Multi-Role Tanker Transport respectively.
Fadjar’s visit underscores the close and long-standing defence relations
between Singapore and Indonesia. The RSAF and the TNI AU commemorated 40 years
of defence relations in 2021. Both air forces cooperate and interact regularly
through the conduct of exercises such as Exercise Elang Indopura, high-level
visits, professional exchanges and cross-attendance of professional courses.
These regular interactions have enhanced close ties and mutual understanding
between the personnel of both air forces.
health checks and safety measures were taken by the visiting delegation.
