The Vice Chief of Naval Operations, Admiral Bill Moran, was in Singapore on December 14, to reaffirm the U.S. Navy’s strong partnership and ties with the Republic of Singapore Armed Forces.
During his visit, he met with Chief of the Republic of Singapore Navy, Rear Admiral Lai Chung Han, and spent time with sailors assigned to the Littoral Combat Ship USS CORONADO (LCS 4).
“Our strategic partnership with the Republic of Singapore Armed Forces reflects our shared commitment to the peace and security of the Indo-Asia-Pacific,” said Adm Moran. “We’re grateful for the cooperation and friendship with partners like Singapore that help our Navy remain forward deployed and ready to contribute to stability within the region.
“Our ties with Singapore were founded on a shared belief of a principled, rules-based order that allows all nations to rise peacefully and contribute to the security of the region,” he added. “We’re confident that this partnership will continue to flourish in ways that benefit both nations.”
