India, UK to hold naval drills off A&N

Saturday, 07 January 2023 | PNS | New Delhi

With China adopting an aggressive stance in the Indo-Pacific region, navies of India and Britain will carry out joint exercises off Andaman and Nicobar Islands in the next five to six days.  The Royal Navy’s offshore patrol vessel, HMS Tamar, sails to the Andaman and Nicobar Islands on Friday as part of its permanent deployment in the Indo-Pacific. Over the next five days, the ship and her crew will undertake capability demonstrations and maritime exercises with the Indian Navy.

HMS Tamar is one of two Royal Navy vessels on permanent deployment in the Indo-Pacific as set out in the United Kingdom’s Integrated Review. The ship’s visit to India is an opportunity to further strengthen the shared maritime domain awareness effort, and underlines the UK’s and India’s intent to collaborate in the Indian Ocean Region and wider Indo-Pacific, the British High Commission said here on Friday.
