Wing Commander Anjali Singh has become India's first female military diplomat to be posted in any of the Indian missions abroad.

Singh has joined the Indian Embassy in Russia as the Deputy Air Attache, the mission said in a tweet.

Singh, who is trained on MiG-29 fighter aircraft, joined her new assignment on September 10.

"Wing Commander Anjali Singh joined @IndEmbMoscow on September 10 as the Deputy Air Attache. She enjoys the distinction of being the first female Indian Armed Forces Officer to be posted as a military diplomat in any of the Indian missions abroad," the embassy said in a tweet.

An air attaché is an Air Force officer who is part of a diplomatic mission; this post is normally filled by a high-ranking officer. An air attaché typically represents the chief of his home air force in the foreign country where he or she serves. PTI
