An Indian Naval Ship Visits Cambodia

The Indian naval ship, ICGS VIJIT (No. 31), docked at the Sihanoukville Autonomous Port in Preah Sihanouk province this morning for a five-day visit in Cambodia.

Led by Captain T. Ashish, the 80-metre-long-and-4.50-metre-deep vessel has 80 crew members and 15 soldiers on board.

They were greeted upon their arrival by Rear Admiral Ros Veasna, Deputy Commander of the Ream Naval Base.

According to the captain, the visit aims to exchange experience between the two countries' navies and to conduct a joint training to strengthen the friendship, solidarity and cooperation between the two countries and peoples.

During his visit, Captain T. Ashish is scheduled to pay a courtesy call on the Preah Sihanouk provincial governor and the commander of maritime base, and to visit Phnom Penh.

There will also be football and volleyball matches, as well as a joint training between the two navies.

Cambodia is part of the ICGS VIJIT's four-country tour programme. The other three countries are Indonesia, Vietnam and Malaysia.

In 2017, Preah Sihanouk province also welcomed the four-day visit of an Indian naval vessel.
