External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj today handed over the second Dornier aircraft to the Seychelles President Danny Antoine Rollen Faure in New Delhi. Prime Minister Narendra Modi yesterday handed over the replica of aircraft to visiting President at Hyderabad House.

On the occasion, Ms Swaraj said she is sure that this aircraft will give a quantum enhancement in maritime reconnaissance and contribute towards keeping the vast EEZ of Seychelles free from maritime threats.
