Indian Navy conducts coordinated patrol with other littoral countries of the Andaman Sea along their respective Exclusive Economic Zones (EEZ) with an aim to enhance regional maritime security, the statement said.

India and Indonesia have enjoyed especially close relations, covering a wide spectrum of activities and interactions which have strengthened over the years, it said.

The two navies have been carrying out CORPAT along their International Maritime Boundary Line (IMBL) since 2002. This has helped build understanding and interoperability between both the navies and has facilitated measures to prevent and suppress illegal unreported unregulated fishing, drug trafficking, maritime terrorism, armed robbery and piracy, the statement said.

The IND-INDO CORPAT contributes towards forging strong bonds of friendship across the Andaman Sea and Malacca Strait, it added.
