I am sure we will be able to develop further synergies in our respective future carrier strike capabilities.

Admiral Sir Philip Jones RN

“When combined with our regular operational interaction and exercises such as the hugely valuable Konkan series there can be no doubt we will be increasingly well placed to work together across the full spectrum of Naval activity – from disaster relief to high end warfighting.”

Exercise Konkan is an annual UK-Indian naval exercise that is usually held off the coast of Goa and demonstrates the commitment of both nations to building a strong defence partnership. The last ship to take part was Portsmouth-based Type 45 destroyer HMS Dragon which is currently deployed in the Middle East.

As part of the Indian Naval delegation’s visit to the UK, Adm Lanba has also been hosted by Chief of Defence Staff General Sir Nick Carter and will visit HM Naval Base Clyde in Faslane, Scotland.
