India and Singapore on 3 June 2013 reaffirmed their strong and long-standing defence ties as they renewed a bilateral agreement for the conduct of joint army training and exercises. The agreement was signed after visiting Defence Minister A K Antony held bilateral talks with his Singapore counterpart Ng Eng Hen.

The Agreement for the Conduct of Joint Army Training and Exercises was first established on 12 August 2008. Its renewal allows the Singapore Army to train and exercise with the Indian Army in India for another five years.

The armies of India and Singapore jointly conducted bilateral armour and artillery exercises, codenamed Ex Bold Kurukshetra and Ex Agni Warrior respectively. The bilateral exercise was successfully conducted in March 2013 and a combined artillery live-firing was carried out in December 2012.
