YANGON, Feb. 17 (Xinhua) -- Two Indian warships are calling at Myanmar's International Terminals Thilawa in Yangon, an official report said Wednesday.
The INS Saryu and INS Bitra of Indian navy, which arrived at the Yangon port Tuesday, carry 174 officers and crew members led by Commanding Officer CDR Sreekumar Pillak.
The visit of the two India naval ships, set to stay in Myanmar for three days, came after that of an Indian coast guard ship in mid-January which carried 11 officers and 95 sailors.
That ship, designed to carry a Chetak helicopter, was regularly undertaking anti- smuggling, anti- poaching patrol in addition to tasks related to preservation and protection of marine environment and search and rescue at sea.
One more Indian naval ship also called at Yangon's Thilawa Port in May last year.
