Matching skills:Indian Navy ships participating in the India, Singapore and Thailand Trilateral Maritime Exercise, SITMEX-2020, in the Andaman Sea.ANIANI  

The second edition of the India, Thailand and Singapore trilateral naval exercise, SITMEX-20, concluded in the Andaman Sea on Sunday. The 27th edition of India-Singapore bilateral maritime exercise, SIMBEX-20, is scheduled to be held in the same area from November 23 to 25.

“The exercise, being conducted as a ‘non-contact, at sea only’ exercise in view of COVID-19 pandemic, highlights growing synergy, coordination and cooperation in the maritime domain between the three friendly navies and maritime neighbours,” the Navy said in a statement.

The Indian Navy deployed indigenous Anti-Submarine Warfare corvette INS Kamorta and missile corvette INS Karmuk for the exercise held on November 21 and 22 and hosted by the Singapore Navy.

Singapore deployed a ‘Formidable’ Class frigate Intrepid and ‘Endurance’ Class Landing Ship Tank Endeavour and the Royal Thai Navy deployed a ‘Chao Phraya’ Class frigate Kraburi for the exercise.

The first edition of the exercise was hosted by the Indian Navy and was held off Port Blair in the month of September last year.
