MOSCOW, April 26 /TASS/. The Russian military highly appreciate Singapore’s activities in joint work in multilateral formats, Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu said at a meeting with his Singaporean counterpart Dr. Ng Eng Hen on Tuesday.
According to Shoigu, the Russian Defense Ministry appreciates Singapore’s stance at discussions held in the formats of ASEAN; the ASEAN Defense Ministers’ Meeting (ADMM -Plus) and the Shangri-La Dialogue.

"We hope that the talks will contribute to strengthening friendly ties between our armed forces," Shoigu concluded.
