The Indian Navy noted that Sri Lanka successively tackled terrorism.
Addressing the fourth conclave of defence attaches in New Delhi, Indian Navy Chief Admiral Karambir Singhhe said the Indian Navy is “committed to enhancing cooperation and engagement with like-minded navies in the Indian Ocean region”.
Singh pitched for having greater maritime cooperation and leveraging “collective military competency” of the world. “We have to learn from the best practices and joint exercises. It is not necessary, only one nation has all the competencies. So, we need to work together. Bangladesh Indonesia know a lot about HADR (Humanitarian Assistance and Disaster Relief), Sri Lanka has successively tackled terrorism, Seychells and Mauritius have worked on marine ecology and conservation, Myanmar’s indigenous shipbuilding and various other navies in the region,” he said.
He said that cooperation is a “big buzzword” for the Indian Navy, Deccan Herald reported.
