(Dec 9): Singapore’s agreement to establish a fighter jet training detachment on Guam “sets the trajectory” in which the city-state sees itself in partnership with the US, its defence chief said.

Defence Minister Ng Eng Hen and US Secretary of Defense Mark Esper signed the agreement, which followed the recent renewal of a pact that allows American forces use of Singapore bases, according to a statement on the Singapore Ministry of Defence’s website.

Most leaders and people in Asia would say they want America’s presence to be continued, Ng said Saturday at the Reagan National Defense Forum in Simi Valley, California. “They don’t want to choose between great power rivalry between the US and China, but they also both want to be involved, including other powers.”
