NEW DELHI : The Indian Navy and the Royal Thai Navy conducted the 35th edition of the India-Thailand Coordinated Patrol (Indo-Thai CORPAT) from May 3 to May 10, 2023, in the Andaman Sea, the Ministry of Defence said.

The bi-annual coordinated patrol aims to reinforce maritime linkages between the two countries and ensure the safety and security of the international trade route in the Indian Ocean. 

The Indian Naval Ship (INS) Kesari, an indigenously built LST (L), and His Thai Majesty’s Ship (HTMS) Saiburi, a Chao Phraya Class Frigate, along with Maritime Patrol Aircraft from both navies participated in the exercise.

According to the ministry, the patrol helps in understanding and interoperability between the two navies and facilitates the prevention and suppression of unlawful activities such as Illegal Unreported Unregulated (IUU) fishing, drug trafficking, piracy, and armed robbery. It also enables the exchange of information to prevent smuggling, illegal immigration, and conduct search and rescue (SAR) operations at sea.

The Indian Navy has been proactively engaging with countries in the Indian Ocean Region towards enhancing regional maritime security as part of the Government of India’s vision of SAGAR (Security And Growth for All in the Region). The 35th Indo-Thai CORPAT is another step towards consolidating inter-operability and forging strong bonds of friendship between India and Thailand.

The Indian Navy and Royal Thai Navy have enjoyed a close and friendly relationship that has strengthened over the years, covering a wide spectrum of activities and interactions.
