The First Training Squadron (1TS), comprising INS Tir and CGS Sarathi, concluded visit to Port Louis, Mauritius, as part of their Long Range Training Deployment, officials said on Friday.

The visit, coinciding with the 57th Mauritius National Day celebrations, highlighted the deep maritime ties between India and Mauritius.

A naval contingent and a helicopter participated in the Mauritius National Day city parade which was witnessed by Indian President Droupadi Murmu, who attended the event as the Chief Guest.

The visit was enriching for the Indian Naval trainees who visited Maritime Air Squadron and Police Helicopter Squadron of Mauritius.

As part of cross training visit, the National Coast Guard personnel of Mauritius were imparted training on small arms and firefighting onboard 1TS ships.

The visit culminated in PASSEX and VBSS exercise further enhancing interoperability.

Joint EEZ surveillance was also undertaken by 1TS along with Mauritius Coast Guard Dornier prior entering Port Louis.

The extant visit underscores the shared commitment to regional security and highlights rich cultural and diplomatic ties between India and Mauritius.
