Colombo (News1st): A trio of Indian Navy ships arrived at the port of Trincomalee on Friday (September 07). They will take part in naval drills held over a period of six days.

At about 11 this morning the Indian vessels INS Sumitra, INS Kirch, and INS Kora Divh arrived at the Trincomalee port to take part in SLINEX-2018 a joint naval exercise aimed at improving relations on marine operations and strengthening trust between the two navies.
