Two Indian naval ships along with one Indian Navy Dornier aircraft will call at Myanmar's Yangon Port later on Monday as part of an ongoing exercise between the two nations, media reported.

The three-day call would include activities for the 7th India-Myanmar coordinated patrol that maintains maritime security and enhances operational exchanges between the navies, Global New Light of Myanmar reported.

The two Indian naval ships are INS Kulish and INS Batti Malv.
