New Delhi: India and Singapore today signed an agreement to deepen cooperation in the maritime security domain and called for ensuring of navigation in critical lanes against the backdrop of China’s increasing military manoeuvres in the Indo-Pacific region.

The two countries also resolved to boost overall defence cooperation with a particular focus on combating terrorism during wide-ranging talks between Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman and her Singaporean counterpart Ng Eng Hen. 

The pact on naval cooperation provides for increased engagement in the maritime security sphere, joint exercises, temporary deployments from each other’s naval facilities and logistics support.

“India and Singapore remain strongly committed to tackle the transnational security threats,” Sitharaman said at a joint media interaction with Ng, noting that both sides agreed to ramp up overall defence cooperation.

The Singaporean defence minister called the talks “overwhelmingly successful and productive” and emphasised the need for concerted regional and global efforts to deal with terrorism and other challenges such as tackling chemical and biological weapons.
