According to the Navy, two maritime exercises were conducted by the Indian Navy with the Moroccan Navy and the Algerian Navy during the week that ended on Tuesday.
On August 29, the Indian Naval Ship (INS Tabar) participated in a maritime partnership exercise alongside the Algerian Navy Ship ‘Ezzadjer. INS Tabar is currently on a goodwill trip to Europe and Africa.
The Indian Navy stated that the Alandmark exercise was held off the Algerian coast and saw participation by ‘Ezzadjer,’ a frontline Algerian warship.
Diverse activities were performed between the Indian warships and the Algerian warships as part of the exercise.
According to the force, the exercise allowed the two navies understand each other’s concept of operations, enhancing interoperability, and opening the possibility for greater interaction and collaboration in the future.
Before that, INS Tabar visited Casablanca, Morocco on August 25th and 26th.
The ship left the harbour on August 26 and participated in a maritime partnership drill with the Royal Moroccan Navy ship “Lieutenant Colonel Arrahman” off Casablanca port.
During the exercise, evolutions such as communication drills and replenishment at sea procedures were made.
The traditional steam past between the ships was the final part of the exercise.
India has been working with friendly countries to improve its capabilities and to learn from the best of the other.
Last week, Indian Navy chief Admiral Karambir Singh stated clearly that fundamental principles of maritime orientation were being challenged. India must continue to compete in this evolving paradigm.
He stated that the fundamental precepts of maritime orientation have been challenged and that competition is becoming more varied in the region. This includes diplomacy, commerce as well as ideology, values, science, and technology.
