Hanoi (VNA) – Indonesia and Singapore have been
committed to jointly promoting peace, security and stability in the Southeast
Asian region, contributing to the world order, said Indonesia’s armed forces
(TNI) chief General Gatot Nurmantyo.

He made the remark on July 12, on the occasion of a Jakarta visit
by commander of the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) Lieutenant General Perry Lim,
who was in Indonesia for the 20th Combined Annual Report Meeting – Indonesia-Singapore
High Level Committee between the SAF and TNI.

The Singaporean Lieutenant General said he expects bilateral
ties to be strengthened, adding that transnational terrorism is an evident
threat that both countries must work together to address.

The SAF and TNI’s annual high-level meeting aims to discuss
security and defence matters.

Singapore and Indonesia agreed in 2012 to have an overall
governing body overseeing bilateral meetings between the two armed forces in
the areas of operations, exercises, intelligence, logistics and personnel.

Currently, they are intensifying joint patrol at sea to
prevent the intrusion of Islamic State gunmen.-VNA
