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.
"In practical terms, I can single out naval cooperation. Russian warships regularly call at Singaporean ports," the Russian defense minister said.

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