    New Delhi: Chief of Naval Staff Admiral Sunil Lanba has begun a goodwill visit to Malaysia from April 11-15. According to Navy Spokesperson Capt D K Sharma, the visit is intended to consolidate and enhance bilateral maritime relations between India and Malaysia.

    “The visit also aims at providing a major boost to defence relations between India and Malaysia,” says the spokesperson.

    Admiral Lanbha is expected to hold discussions with the Deputy Minister of Defence, Chief of Royal Malaysian Defence Forces along with the Chiefs of Army, Navy and Air Force of Malaysia.

    He is also expected to visit major naval establishments of the Royal Malaysian Navy including the submarine base. He is scheduled to address the participant officers and faculty of the prestigious Royal Malaysian Armed Forces Command and Staff College.

    The Indian and the Royal Malaysian navies have been holding training and operational interactions from time to time. Interactions at various multilateral forums including Indian Ocean Naval Symposium, MILAN and ADMM Plus have boosted the ties between both the navies.

    Warships from both navies visit each other’s ports to build ‘Bridges of Friendship’. The Chief of the Royal Malaysian Navy (RMN) along with RMN corvette KD Lekir participated in the International Fleet Review-2016, at Visakhapatnam in February 2016.

    “An inaugural Field Training Exercise is also scheduled between both navies in June this year, coinciding with the visit of Indian naval ships to Malaysia,” the Spokesperson added.
