It saw the two navies deploying warships and maritime patrol aircraft along the international maritime boundary line in the Andaman Sea from 3 to 10 May.
“Towards strengthening bilateral maritime links and with the aim of keeping this vital part of the Indian Ocean safe, India and Royal Thai Navy have been doing this patrol every two years since 2005,” an officer said. Corpat builds military understanding and interoperability, and facilitates measures to prevent illegal activities such as illegal fishing and drug trafficking. “It also enhances operational synergy by exchanging information to prevent smuggling, illegal immigration and for search and rescue operations,” the official added.
The Navy has “proactively engaged” with countries in the Indian Ocean region to enhance security as part of the government’s vision for SAGAR (security and growth for all in the region). .
