NEW DELHI: India’s largest aircraft carrier, INS Vikramaditya, accompanied by two battleships, INS Mysore and INS Deepak reached Maldives yesterday on a four-day long goodwill visit.

Maldivian Foreign Minister has termed the visit a powerful symbol of the strength of relationship between India and Maldives. Later, Maldivian Defence Minister Adam Shareef Umar Adhi visited the ship and held interactions with the officers.

This is the second international port of call for the pride of India’s fleet, aircraft carrier INS Vikramaditya, since its commissioning in Indian Navy last year.

India’s largest Naval ship had visited Colombo port last month before participating in the International Fleet Review at Vishakhapatanam last week.

During the visit to Male, the officers and sailors aboard INS Vikramaditya and the two accompanying warships will have professional interactions with the personnel of Maldivian National Defence Force for enhancing the close defence co-operation.

They will also be involved in a number of sports and social engagements before leaving for the country on Thursday.
