The Repub­lic of Sin­ga­pore Navy (RSN) and the Roy­al Malaysian Navy (RMN) are con­duct­ing Exer­cise Mala­pu­ra, a bilat­er­al mar­itime exer­cise, from 22 Feb to 4 Mar 2010.

Host­ed by Sin­ga­pore, this year’s exer­cise is the 20th in the series of bilat­er­al exer­cis­es held since 1984. Dur­ing the 11-day exer­cise, both navies will con­duct drills in con­ven­tion­al naval war­fare and mar­itime secu­ri­ty at the Chan­gi Naval Base and in the Malac­ca Strait. The RSN is par­tic­i­pat­ing in the exer­cise with a frigate (RSS Stead­fast), a mis­sile corvette (RSS Vic­to­ry) and a patrol ves­sel (RSS Dar­ing). Join­ing them are a frigate (KD Lek­iu), a corvette (KD Lak­samana Tun Abdul Jamil) and a patrol ves­sel (KD Tereng­ganu) from the RMN.

The RSN and RMN inter­act reg­u­lar­ly in a range of activ­i­ties. These include pro­fes­sion­al exchanges and cours­es, as well as mul­ti­lat­er­al activ­i­ties, such as the Five Pow­er Defence Arrange­ments. Both navies have also been work­ing close­ly to enhance mar­itime secu­ri­ty through the Malac­ca Strait Patrols. These reg­u­lar inter­ac­tions serve to strength­en mutu­al under­stand­ing and pro­fes­sion­al ties among the per­son­nel of both navies.
