Indian Navy ships enter Cambodia and Thailand

New Delhi — In pursuit of India’s ‘Look East’ and ‘Act East’ policy, the Indian Navy’s Eastern Fleet ships under the command of Rear Admiral Ajendra Bahadur Singh, VSM, Flag Officer Commanding Eastern Fleet (FOCEF), are on a two month long operational deployment to South East and Southern Indian Ocean.

As part of the deployment, two of the Indian warships, INS Ranvir (guided missile destroyer) and INS Kamorta (indigenously built anti-submarine corvette) entered Sihanoukville, Cambodia. The other two warships INS Satpura, an indigenously built guided missile stealth frigate, and INS Shakti, a sophisticated fleet tanker and support ship, entered Sattahip, Thailand, today on a four day visit. The previous visit by an Indian Naval ship to Thailand was in 10 June.

The visit is aimed at strengthening bilateral ties between the countries as well as fostering inter-operability between the navies of these two friendly nations.

These ships are on the return leg after a 45-day deployment. During the stay in harbour, various activities such as official calls, professional interaction between personnel of both the navies, reception on-board and ship visits have been planned.

On departure from Sihanoukville, INS Ranvir and INS Kamorta will participate in warfare drills with the Cambodian Navy for enhancing interoperability in maritime operations including search and rescue.

These ships have already visited Singapore, Jakarta (Indonesia), Freemantle (Australia) and Kuantan (Malaysia) during their deployment. During this deployment, two warships also participated in the bilateral exercise SIMBEX-15 with the Royal Singapore Navy from 20-26 May 15.
