Indian warship INS Kadmatt docked at the Philippine’s Manila port to bolster maritime cooperation

The Indian corvettes INS Kadmatt docked at the Manila port in the Philippines on Monday in an effort to strengthen maritime cooperation between the two countries. Modern anti-submarine weaponry is installed on the indigenously developed and built anti-submarine warfare corvette, INS Kadmatt.

The visit by the Indian warship is a part of the ongoing Long Range Operational Deployment, which involves personnel from both Navies engaging in a variety of activities. These engagements include cross-deck visits, expert exchanges on the topic area, and professional meets with the goal of improving collaboration and sharing best practices. Along with these scheduled activities, the tour will include schoolchildren visits, community outreach, and social impact activities.

In addition, after departing from Manila, a Maritime Partnership Exercise in the South China Sea is planned between INS Kadmatt and BRP Ramon Alcaraz, a Philippine Navy off-shore patrol vessel.

The Indian Embassy in Manila stated on Wednesday that, in an effort to strengthen maritime cooperation, India and the Philippines are holding a maritime partnership exercise (MPX) in the West Philippine Sea.

Speaking on the arrival of INS Kadmatt, Indian envoy to Philippines, Shambhu Kumaran said, “The Philippines is centrally located in the Indo-Pacific and we are very close partners, fellow democracies. We have a shared interest in peace and stability of the region– a lot of complementarities. So, you will expect that India will continue a strong Navy and maritime security engagement,” Philippine News Agency quoted.

“On the national security pillar, defense cooperation and maritime security is very important,” he further said.

In light of the most recent developments in the South China Sea, the envoy stated that New Delhi will also keep backing Manila in its calls for adherence to a rules-based order and respect for international law.

Earlier in June, EAM Jaishankar called the 5th India-Philippines Joint Commission on Bilateral Cooperation (JCBC) meeting with Philippines Foreign Affairs Secretary Enrique Manalo “productive and comprehensive”.

The 5th India-Philippines Joint Commission on Bilateral Cooperation (JCBC) was co-chaired in New Delhi by Jaishankar and Enrique Manalo, the foreign affairs secretary of the Philippines.

This year marks the 75th anniversary of the beginning of diplomatic relations between the Philippines and India.

During the recent clashes between Chinese and Philippine boats, Manila summoned Beijing’s ambassador.

Speaking at a press conference, Teresita Daza of the Philippines Foreign Ministry said that Manila had lodged further diplomatic protests in response to the incidents, adding that “the Chinese ambassador has also been summoned.”

The Philippines said that its ships were struck by Chinese water cannon while attempting to provide supplies to Filipino fisherman at Scarborough Shoal, which Beijing seized in 2012 after a months-long standoff.
