Prime Minister Gen Prayut Chan-o-cha and Singaporean Minister for Defence Ng Eng Hen stressed improved exchanges on military and technology issues were needed to cope with security issues, including the Korean peninsula tension, cyber threat and terrorism, when they met on Monday.



As Singapore will chair the Asean Conference and the Asean Defence Ministers’ Meeting next year, Ng stressed that more military engagement with non-Asean countries, such as India and China, was necessary to increase regional security.

Prayut and Ng also agreed to increase intelligence exchange and security monitoring, said Deputy Spokesperson Maj Gen Werachon Sukondhapatipak.

Ng was visiting Thailand as a guest of Thai Defence Ministry.
