AIR PICS
The Indian Coast Guard ships save one life everyday. Commanding officer DIG Anwar Khan said this in his welcome address at an on board reception on the ICGS Samudra Pehredar in Dubai on Sunday.

The indigenously built Indian Coast Guard ship (ICGS) Samudra Paheredar is on a three-day scheduled visit to UAE with the aim to enhance interactions and cooperation between the Indian Coast Guard (ICG) and the UAE Maritime Agencies and for conduct of combined exercises/ interaction so as to consolidate the professional and working relationship with UAE and its respective agencies.

The reception was attended by senior Navy and Coast Guard officials of the UAE government, other defence officials, diplomats and the Indian Community.

Ambassador Pavan Kapoor also addressed the distinguished gathering and spoke of close defence ties between India and the UAE.

ICGS Samudra Paheredar, commissioned in 2010, is the second pollution-control vessel in the Indian Coast Guard's fleet.
It is equipped with state-of-the-art pollution response and control equipment, including containment equipment such as Hi sprint booms and river booms, recovery devices such as skimmers and side-sweeping arms, and storage devices such as oil recovery operation tanks and inflatable barges.

The ship will be undertaking various maritime related joint training manoeuvres with UAE Maritime Agencies during the the visit which will include Marine Pollution Response, Maritime Search & Rescue and Maritime Law enforcement.

Earlier, the ship visited Muscat, Doha and Riyadh before docking at the UAE during its tour of the gulf countries. It will sail back to Porbander on 4th of this month.
