Sri Lanka Navy’s Offshore Patrol Vessel, SLNS Sagara participates in the joint maritime fleet exercise, ‘SLINEX 2013’, conducted in the seas off Goa in India from November 04th to 08th 2013.

The joint exercise is aimed at enhancing interoperability and exchanging professional knowledge. It provides the opportunity for both navies to rehearse the concept of joint naval operations and enhance own skills, the navy headquarters said.

Indian Navy’s frigate, INS Teg and 02 FACs along with a Chetak helicopter are scheduled to take part.

It also said, SLINEX 2013 focuses on non-traditional threats that include maritime terrorism. As such maritime interdiction operations, Visit Board Search and Seize (VBSS) operations, Search and Rescue (SAR) demonstrations, asymmetric threat exercises and helicopter operations will figure prominent in the 05-day exercise.

Director General Operation of the Sri Lanka Navy Rear Admiral Neil Rosayro participates as the senior officer representing Sri Lanka and he is joined by Defence Advisor to the Sri Lankan High Commission in India, Captain US Senevirathna, it added.

    Why don't they do a joint exercise in the Palk Strait to monitor the straying Indian fleet?
