Muscat: The Indian Coast Guard ship 'Vikram' is expected to reach Muscat on Wednesday as part of a goodwill tour of the Gulf, a statement by the Indian Embassy in Oman read.
Vikram will be in Oman as part of a three-day visit to boost ties between the two friendly nations. The vessel is making its way in Oman after visiting the port of Dammam in Saudi Arabia.
The ship is a newly commissioned vessel of the Indian Coast Guard. It has a complement of around 100 personnel and is commanded by Commandant Raj Kamal Sinha.
The ship is on a month long deployment in the GCC. Oman and Indian Coast Guards signed a Memorandum of Understanding on Maritime Crime Prevention at Sea in May 2016 and regularly conduct high level meetings. The next meeting is expected to take place in India next year.
