Naval forces of India, Singapore, and Thailand are engaged in a trilateral maritime exercise 'SITMEX-20' in the Andaman Sea to strengthen mutual confidence and develop common understanding and procedures towards enhancing overall maritime security in the region.

As part of the second edition of the exercise, Indian Navy ships, including indigenously built anti-submarine warfare corvette Kamorta, and missile corvette Karmuk, are participating. The two-day exercise began on Saturday, the Defence Ministry said on Sunday.

The first edition of SITMEX, hosted by the Indian Navy, was conducted off Port Blair in September 2019.
