SINGAPORE: Malaysian Defence Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein is attending a three-day 15th Shangri-La Dialogue security forum which opened here Friday.

Hishammuddin is scheduled to join his counterparts from India and Japan, Manohar Parrikar and Gen Nakatani respectively, at the second plenary session tomorrow to discuss ‘Managing Military Competition in Asia’.

The International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS), which organises the conference, said in a statement Friday that this year’s conference takes place against the backdrop of growing tensions over the South China Sea, North Korea’s military provocations, and renewed concerns over jihadist terrorism.
