Indian Naval Ship Kiltan visited Muara in Brunei as part of the Operational Deployment of the Indian Navy’s Eastern Fleet to the South China Sea.

According to a release in Visakhapatnam on Thursday, the visit demonstrated India’s commitment to further deepening relations between both maritime nations.

The port call included professional interactions, cross-deck visits and cultural exchanges. The ship was also open to visitors, and members of the Indian diaspora and the Royal Brunei Navy personnel visited the ship.

To bolster esprit de corps, the Indian Navy and Royal Brunei Navy personnel play volleyball. The ship also participated in an IN–RBN Maritime Partnership Exercise.

This will enhance understanding of each other’s tactics, techniques, and procedures to further reinforce interoperability, as the release added.
