The Indian Navy Ship INS AIRAVAT arrived in Nha Rong-Khanh Hoi Port in Ho Chi Minh City on August 30 bringing Covid-19 relief supplies as a friendly contribution from India to the people and Government of Vietnam in their ongoing fight against the Covid-19 pandemic, the Embassy of India in Hanoi informed on Monday.
The ship, controlled by Captain M. Prasanna Kumar, is carrying 100 Metric Tons of Liquid Medical Oxygen in 5 ISO Containers and 300 Oxygen Concentrators of 10 LPM capacity each based on the requirement projected by the Government of Vietnam in its fight against the ongoing pandemic.
INS Airavat, an indigenously built Landing Ship Tank (Large) under the Eastern Naval Command based at Visakhapatnam, is on a deployment to South East Asia for trans-shipment of Covid relief aid, a statement from the Indian Navy said.
Referring to India-Vietnam ties, the Indian Navy statement said, “India and Vietnam enjoy a strong traditional bond of friendship and have been working together towards a safer maritime domain."
“The two navies cooperate in various areas including a composite training programme in the fields of the submarine, aviation and technical training, and regularly carry out joint naval exercises in the form of bilateral exercises. The current deployment of the ship aims to further strengthen the strategic relationship," it said.
