Indian and Indonesian navies undertake coordinated patrol

INS Saryu, an Indian built Offshore Patrol Vessel is undertaking coordinated patrol (CORPAT) with Indonesian naval Ship KRI Bung Tomo from 30 to 31 July 2021. The 36th edition of CORPAT will include the participation of Maritime Patrol Aircraft from both nations. The exercise, being conducted as a ‘non-contact, at sea only’ exercise in view of COVID-19 pandemic.

India and Indonesia have been conducting Coordinated Patrols along the International Maritime Boundary Line (IMBL) twice a year since 2002, with an aim of keeping this vital part of the Indian Ocean Region safe and secure for commercial shipping, international trade and conduct of legitimate maritime activities. CORPATs help build understanding and interoperability between navies, and facilitate institution of measures to prevent and suppress Illegal Unreported Unregulated (IUU) fishing, drug trafficking, maritime terrorism, armed robbery and piracy.

“As part of Government of India’s vision of SAGAR (Security AndGrowth for All in the Region), Indian Navy has been engaging with countries in the Indian Ocean Region to enhance maritime security in the region. India and Indonesia have traditionally enjoyed a close and friendly relationship covering a wide spectrum of activities and interactions, which have strengthened over the years. Maritime interactions have been growing steadily between the two navies with frequent port visits, bilateral exercises and training exchanges,” said the Indian navy press note.

The 36th edition of IND-INDO CORPAT seeks to bolster the maritime cooperation between the two navies and forge strong bonds of friendship across the Indo Pacific.
