Colombo, INS Sri Lanka’s navy said on Friday that the guided-missile corvette Kora had a safe port call in that country. The Indian Naval Ship (INS) Kora made a port call at Colombo on Thursday, and the Sri Lanka Navy said goodbye to it in the traditional way. The navy of the island nation said this in a statement.
It was reported that the ship left Sri Lanka on Friday after a successful stay.
“During Operational Turnaround, INS Kora was sent to the Port of Colombo from November 15th to 16th.” The Indian Mission in Sri Lanka said on platform X that during the port call, the Commander of the Western Naval Command of the Sri Lankan Navy spoke with the Commanding Officer of the ship.
The Sri Lankan Navy said that the 91.1-meter-long ship, INS Kora, is a missile frigate owned by the Indian Navy and staffed by 125 people.
“Commander RM Nambiar, the Commanding Officer of INS Kora, called on Rear Admiral Saman Perera, Commander Western Naval Area, and Commandant Volunteer Naval Force, at the Western Naval Command Headquarters on November 16,” said the statement.
The INS Kora team checked out some of Colombo’s tourist spots while they were on the island, the report said.
Ships from the Indian Navy often pay a friendly call to the island of Sri Lanka, which is right next door, to build cooperation and goodwill between the two navies.
