COLOMBO (News 1st); Indian Naval Vice Admiral Satish N Ghormade on Monday paid homage to the Indian soldiers at the IPKF memorial in Sri Lanka, which symbolizes the sacrifice of Indian lives for bringing lasting peace to the island nation.

“In a solemn Wreath Laying Ceremony at the IPKF Memorial, VAdm SN Ghormade, VCNS paid homage to the brave Indian soldiers who sacrificed their lives to bring lasting peace in Sri Lanka,” Indian Navy said in a tweet.

Indian Navy Vice Chief Ghormade is in Sri Lanka for handing over a Dornier maritime patrol aircraft to the Sri Lankan military.

India on Monday handed over maritime surveillance aircraft Dornier 228 to Sri Lanka on a gratis basis for two years. 

The aircraft was provided for an interim period of two years till a plane being manufactured in India for Sri Lanka is ready.

The aircraft comes as a sequel to the dialogue between India and Sri Lanka that took place on January 9, 2018, in New Delhi, when the Sri Lankan government sought the possibility of obtaining two Dornier Reconnaissance Aircraft from India.
