Six Singaporean pilots of F16 fighter jets and KC135 refueling crafts, who returned from a three-week French-Indo-Singaporean “Garuda” exercise in Orange (Vaucluse), were honoured during this evening. They could attest to the strength of the ties and to the intensity of French-Singaporean cooperation in the field of defence, particularly with the presence of the Singaporean fighter pilot training school at Cazaux (Gironde).
