Indian Naval Ship (INS) Sahyadri entered Tien Sa Port in Da Nang, central Vietnam, on a four-day visit starting on Friday.
The visit aimed at cementing bilateral ties and enhancing inter-operability between navies of the two countries, according to officials.
According to Indian Navy, the Shvalik-class stealth frigate is on an ‘Operational Deployment' mission, which is a part of India's ‘Look East' and ‘Act East' policy. 
During her stay in Tien Sa Port, a series of exchange activities between the crew and the Vietnamese government, navy and local people will be carried out, according to Da Nang officials. 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Vietnam and India have shared a healthy relationship. The two countries established a strategic partnership in 2007 and signed a memorandum of understanding on defense cooperation two years later.
Commissioned into the Indian navy in July 2012, INS Sahyadri is a multi-role stealth frigate that boasts an impressive array of weaponry, including long range anti-ship missiles, medium and short range surface to air missiles and powerful guns. It is able to carry two integral multi-role helicopters.
