Two Japanese naval ships arrived at the Colombo Port yesterday on a goodwill and supply visit. The two ships, ‘Akizuki’ and ‘Sawagiri’, were welcome by the Sri Lanka Navy in accordance with naval traditions. Japanese Embassy officials were also present at the occasion.

The head of the mission, Commander Escort Division V Captain Futoshi Toyozumi and the ships’ Commanding Officers, Commander Yasuharu Asou and Commander Tsuyoshi Sato were due to pay a courtesy call on the Commander Western Naval Area Rear Admiral Dayananda Nanayakkara at the Western Naval Command Headquarters in Colombo.

Prior to their departure on Monday, the visiting Japanese ships are due to conduct a Passage Exercise with Lankan Navy craft with a view to share professional expertise between the two navies.

    Konichiwa, Irasshaimase. Sanity at last. Hope we get some high tech assistance from the Japanese for navel operations. It is not more technology than manual skill.
