INS Sudrashini and its crew docked at Tien Sa Port in the central city of Da Nang
The INS Sudarashini, an Indian naval training ship, arrived on Tuesday at Vietnam's central port city of Da Nang, where it will be docked for a three-day visit, Tuoi Tre reported.
The 54-meter long ship with its 76 officers and cadets were welcomed at Tien Sa Port by Da Nang authorities, the Defense Ministry's foreign affairs department, and the High Command of Navy, it said.
During the visit, the crew will tour Hue and Hoi An towns before heading to the Sihanoukville Port in Cambodia on Thursday.
Pegged by the Indian government as the country's goodwill ambassador at sea intent on cementing ties with the ASEAN countries, the INS Sudarshini started its voyage to nine nations within the region on September 29 of last year, according to the Indian news website zeenews.
The ship is expected to call on 13 ports in the countries during the journey before returning to Kochi City, India, in late March, the news report said.
