SEOUL, Sept. 25 (UPI) -- Top defense officials from South Korea and Singapore wrapped up meetings Thursday after discussing future cooperation to address ongoing security concerns.

Teo Chee Hean, Singaporean minister for defense, concluded a five-day official trip to South Korea Thursday by meeting with South Korean Minister of National Defense Lee Sang-Hee, the Singapore Ministry of Defense reported.

Teo's visit to South Korea marked the first time a Singaporean defense minister has been to the country since 1992. Officials say Teo and Lee discussed regional threats to security concerns and opportunities for future cooperation.

Additionally, Teo and Lee "agreed to discuss the signing of a defense cooperation agreement and the establishment of air force-to-air force talks between both countries," the release said.
