Indian Naval Ship Tabar conducted its maiden maritime partnership exercise with the Sudanese Navy in the Red Sea. On Friday, the much-vaunted frigate was joined by Sudanese Navy ships, Almazz and Nimer, as a part of its ongoing deployment in Europe and Africa.

A Navy spokesperson informed in a statement that the INS Tabar undertook “a wide range of Naval ops with Sudanese Navy ships, Almazz and Nimer on 10 September 2021 in the Red Sea off the Sudanese coast.”
