A ship from the Indian Navy arrived at the Port of Trincomalee on a training visit.
The ship ‘Nireekshak’ arrived on Monday and will leave on December 3 once the training is completed.
The training comes as Sri Lanka grows its military relations worldwide, despite continued concerns of human rights abuses committed by the military.

Sri Lanka is one of the most dangerous places in the world to be a journalist. Tamil journalists are particularly at threat, with at least 41 media workers known to have been killed by the Sri Lankan state or its paramilitaries during and after the armed conflict.
Despite the risks, our team on the ground remain committed to providing detailed and accurate reporting of developments in the Tamil homeland, across the island and around the world, as well as providing expert analysis and insight from the Tamil point of view
