Indian Naval Ship Trikand has arrived at Maputo on a three days visit, as part of deployment of the Western Fleet to the countries on the East Coast of Africa and Island nations in the Western Indian Ocean.

The ship is part of the Indian Navy’s Western Fleet based at Mumbai under the Western Naval Command and is on a two month deployment to the Western Indian Ocean, along with Indian Naval ships Kolkata and Aditya.

The visit is aimed at enhancing bilateral ties, strengthening the existing bonds of friendship and reinforcing cooperation in maritime security between India and Mozambique.

Maritime links between India and Mozambique date back several centuries. The large Indian diaspora present in Mozambique has contributed actively in promoting our shared socio-cultural heritage and common values.

The recently concluded visit of India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi further strengthened the strong relationship between the two countries.
