Pakistan Navy Ships Nasr and Saif arrived at the Malaysian port of Langkawi to participate in the Langkawi International Maritime and Aerospace (LIMA) Exhibition 2017.
The Pakistan Navy flotilla is being commanded by Commodore Zaka ur Rehman, Commander of the 25th Destroyer Squadron.
Upon arrival at Langkawi, the flotilla was received by senior officials of the Royal Malaysian Navy and Pakistan Embassy staff.
The Pakistani and Royal Malaysian Navies enjoy warm and cordial relations based on various commonalities. The Royal Malaysian Navy actively participated in the recently conducted Multinational Naval Exercise AMAN-17 at Karachi by the Pakistan Navy.
Pakistan Navy Ships also regularly participate in the biennially held LIMA exhibitions/exercises at Langkawi to promote friendship and interoperability with Malaysia and other regional countries.
Upon culmination of this event, the PN and RMN ships and aircraft will conduct the first bilateral naval exercise MALPAK-17, which is a testimony of the growing cooperation between the two navies.
It is expected that the recent visit by the Pakistan Navy ships to Malaysia and participation in the LIMA Exhibition will further strengthen bilateral relations and naval collaboration between the navies.
