New Delhi/Mumbai, Sep 6 (IBNS): Indian Naval Ship Trikand reached Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania, on a three day visit, as part of its deployment to the East Coast of Africa and Island nations in the Western Indian Ocean, the Ministry of Defence said on Tuesday.

The ship is part of the Indian Navy’s Western Fleet based in Mumbai under the Western Naval Command and is on a two-month long deployment to the Western Indian Ocean.

The visit is aimed at enhancing bilateral ties, strengthening the existing bonds of friendship and reinforcing cooperation in maritime security between India and Tanzania, the Ministry of Defence said in its release.

During the stay in harbour, various activities including official calls, cultural events and professional interaction between the two navies are planned.

The ship would also be open to public for on-board visits, during its stay at Dar Es Salaam.

At the helm of the ship is the Commanding Officer, Captain Arjun Dev Nair who is assisted by a team of professional and highly motivated men of the Indian Navy.

The recently concluded visit of India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi provided fresh impetus to the bilateral relationship between the two countries.

The growing defence cooperation between the two countries is evident by the increasing frequency of port visits by naval ships, cooperation in the field of hydrography and training support.

The last such visit by IN ship to Tanzania was in March 2016 when Indian Naval ship Sutlej visited Dar Es Salaam as part of Survey deployment.

The current visit seeks to strengthen the existing bonds of friendship between India and Tanzania and reaffirm India’s commitment towards enhancing maritime cooperation between the two nations.
