Mozambique, India to work together on maritime security

Special Correspondent

NEW DELHI: India and Mozambique have agreed to work together on maritime security to make the Indian Ocean a safe region for trade. An agreement to this effect was reached during delegation-level talks between the visiting Mozambique Minister of National Defence, Filipe Jacinto Nyussi, and Defence Minister A.K Antony here on Tuesday.

 Mr. Nyussi thanked India for the help rendered by the Indian Navy in the rescue of a Mozambican shipping vessel from pirates off the Mozambican coast last year. 

The issue of piracy off the East Coast of Africa prominently figured during talks between the two leaders, a Defence Ministry release said.

Both sides also discussed various bilateral defence cooperation issues while identifying some new areas for cooperation to strengthen the existing relations between the two countries.
