Japan Ground Self-Defense Force chief meets DPM Teo

SINGAPORE : The Chief of Staff of the Japan Ground Self-Defense Force, General Yoshifumi Hibako, met Deputy Prime Minister and Defence Minister Teo Chee Hean on Friday morning. MINDEF said General Hibako is in Singapore for his introductory visit from February 10 to 12. It added that his visit highlights the warm and growing defence relations between Singapore and Japan, underscored by the signing of a Memorandum on Defence Exchanges in December 2009 at the Defence Minister-level. Recently, Japan's Vice-Minister of Defence, Kimito Nakae, made his introductory visit to Singapore last month. MINDEF said both defence establishments conduct regular exchange of visits, policy dialogues, military staff talks and cross-attendance of courses and seminars.
