The Secretary of State for Defence, my right hon. Friend Mr Hammond, discussed the Five Powers Defence Arrangements (FPDA) with his Malaysian counterpart at the Shangri-La Dialogue this summer. I anticipate that the next time such discussions will take place will be at the next meeting of the Five Powers Defence Arrangements Ministerial Meeting (FDMM). This is due to be held in the middle of 2014.
