Major General Molan conveyed his appreciation of the efforts taken by the SLN in curbing human smuggling and stated that his government's decision to gift two patrol boats would be very helpful for the SLN's humanitarian operations to rescue people stranded on the high seas while attempting the perilous journeys.
 
Major General Molan is a senior advisor on the Australian Government's border protection policy and supports engagement with the regional partners on its implementation. Mementos were also exchanged to mark the occasion, the Navy headquarters said in a statement.
