MOSCOW (BNS): Russian Pacific Fleet's destroyer Admiral Panteleyev will take part in IMDEX-2011 naval exhibition and hold joint drills with the Indonesian navy.

Admiral Panteleyev, an Udaloy class destroyer, will visit Singapore where a three-day biennial IMDEX Asia International Maritime Defence Exhibition (IMDEX) will begin Wednesday.

The Russian destroyer will stay in Singapore until May 20 and then depart for Indonesia to take part in anti-piracy drills with the Indonesian navy from May 25-27.

The simulated mission would involve the rescue of a tanker seized by pirates, Pacific Fleet spokesman Capt. 1st Rank Roman Martov was quoted as saying.

Admiral Panteleyev took part in the international anti-piracy mission off the Somali coast in 2009 and seized a boat carrying 29 suspected pirates, a Ria Novosti report said.
