Japanese Coast Guard’s training ship Kojima arrived at the port here on Friday for a two-day visit.

The vessel, which is on an around-the-world oceanic training cruise with 39 post-graduate trainees from its Coast Guard Academy at Kure, has a complement of 89 personnel. Captain Tetsushi Mitsuya, commanding officer of Kojima, called on Deputy Inspector General T.K.S. Chandran, District Commander of the Indian Coast Guard.

The Indian Coast Guard, in a press release, said personnel of both Coast Guards would exchange views and methods on anti-piracy, search and rescue, and pollution response during the vessel’s stay in Kochi. They had a game of volleyball on Friday. Trainees at the Indian Coast Guard Training Centre at Kochi would have an opportunity to interact with their counterparts in the Japanese Coast Guard.

Indian Coast Guard trainees would visit Kojima and trainees of the Japanese Coast Guard would go on board Indian Coast Guard vessel Samar. Japanese Coast Guard personnel are slated to meet city Mayor Tony Chammany and Cochin Port Trust chairman Paul Antony.
