SITMEX 2020: India, Singapore, Thailand naval exercise begins

Nov 22, 2020 08:18 IST

A trilateral naval exercise involving India, Singapore and Thailand commenced in the Andaman Sea on Saturday. The two-day long exercise, SITMEX-2020, is scheduled in a "non-contact, at sea only format", in wake of the COVID-19 restrictions. This edition of the exercise would involve a war-at-sea exercise, naval manoeuvres, weapon firing on the surface and aerial targets, seamanship evolutions, and coordinated navigation operations. The Indian Navy is represented by two indigenous warships, INS Kamorta and INS Karmuk. The exercise is testimony to India's long-standing friendship with Singapore and Thailand.
