MUARA, Thursday, 16 January 2020 - The Commander of Royal Brunei Navy, First Admiral Dato Seri Pahlawan Haji Othman bin Haji Suhaili @ Suhaily, received a courtesy call at the Royal Brunei Navy Headquarters from Group Captain Graeme Davis, Defense Adviser of the United Kingdom to Brunei Darussalam.
During the call, both sides affirmed the strong bilateral relations shared between Royal Brunei Navy and Royal Navy that have developed through various interactions amongst senior officers, officers and personnel. Both sides exchanged perspectives on regional security issues, existing commitments and developments of both organizations and prospective opportunities to further bolster friendly relations. The relationship between the two navies have developed through multilateral collaborations and platforms, goodwill visits, conferences, seminars and training.
