NEW DELHI (PTI): Seeking to strengthen defence ties, Indian Navy Chief Admiral Robin Dhowan will be on a four-day visit to Canada starting today.

"The Navy Chief is visiting Canada from August 5-8 on the invitation of the Commander of Royal Canadian Navy and it reciprocates a visit by the Canadian Navy Chief in January last year," a Navy release said on Monday.

During his visit, the Navy Chief will visit Esquimalt Naval Base at Victoria, the headquarters of the Maritime Forces Pacific of the Canadian Navy.

"At Ottawa, the Navy Chief will have bilateral meetings with senior hierarchy of Canadian Forces including the officiating Chief of Defence Staff Lt. Gen. GR Thibault and Royal Canadian Navy commander Vice Admiral MAG Norman," the release said.

The visit is aimed at fostering closer navy-to-navy ties with Canada, and to explore avenues for enhancing cooperation between the two navies, it said.
