India and Burma to Hold Joint Naval Exercise

Dhaka: Two Indian naval ships will set out for Burma from the Bangladesh port of Chittagong today to take part in a joint naval exercise with Burma, said a report of an Indian official that was published in a Bangladesh newspaper.

The report said that two Indian coastguard ships, the Vajra and Razia Sultan, will leave for Burma on Thursday morning after a joint exercise is completed with Bangladesh in the Bay of Bengal.

The joint naval exercise with Bangladesh will be completed today, with the ships to leave for Burma afterwards.

The two Indian ships came from Orissa State in India and arrived in Chittagong Port on Sunday to take part in a four-day naval exercise with Bangladesh.

The naval ships will stay in Burma for four days. During that time, the ships will complete the joint exercise the same as they have done in Bangladesh, the report said.
