NEW DELHI (PTI): An Indian Navy warship INS Shivalik on Tuesday reached Hai Phong port in Vietnam on a three-day goodwill visit for improving inter-operability between the two navies.

"The guided missile stealth frigate arrived at Hai Phong for the visit aimed at strengthening bilateral ties and enhancing inter-operability between navies of the two nations," a Navy release said.

During the stay in harbour, "various activities are planned including official calls, reception on board ship and professional interaction between personnel of both the navies.

On departure, the ship will exercise with Vietnamese Naval ships for improving inter-operability in communication, search and rescue procedures and other areas," it said.

To demonstrate its operational reach and pursuit of India's 'Look East' policy, the Navy's Eastern Fleet, under the Command of Rear Admiral Atul Kumar Jain is on an operational deployment to the South China Sea and the North Western Pacific region.

The warships of the fleet participated in the Indo-Russian naval exercise INDRA and the trilateral naval exercise MALABAR 14 with the US Navy and Japanese Maritime Self Defence Force (JMSDF) in the Sea of Japan, recently.
