New Delhi: The Indian Navy’s two frontline warships INS Sahyadri and INS Kolkata, mission deployed in southeastern Indian Ocean Region, arrived in Jakarta on July 17.

“The ships were accorded a warm welcome by the Indonesian Navy,” a Navy official said.

During the port call, personnel from Indian and Indonesian navies will engage in a wide range of professional interactions, joint yoga sessions, sports fixtures, and cross-deck visits, aimed at strengthening cooperation and understanding between the two navies.

Upon completion of the operational turnaround, the two ships will also participate in a maritime partnership exercise (MPX) at sea with the Indonesian Navy towards further bolstering the high degree of interoperability that already exists between the two navies.

INS Sahyadri is the third indigenously designed and built Project-17 class stealth frigate and INS Kolkata is the first indigenously designed and built stealth destroyer of the Project-15A class.

Both the ships have been built at Mazagon Dock Shipbuilders Ltd, Mumbai.
