As many as 37 countries are participating in the four-day exercise. The exercise is the fifth such in the series of exercises Pakistan has been holding biennially since 2007.

Speaking on the occasion, Pakistan Fleet Commander Vice Admiral Arifullah Hussaini said, "We are here for a common purpose to make this world safe for us and for rest of the humanity. We believe in inclusive policy and we think that if the world stands together, there will be great benefits for all of us."

He said that the region was experiencing swift geo-strategic changes, which had provided Pakistan with diversified challenges but also many opportunities that mandated a secure environment not only within Pakistan but also in the region at large.

The admiral reiterated that Pakistan Navy had always been a consistent security contributor to Indian Ocean region. "Pakistan's maritime forces are actively participating with other navies in combating narcotics trade, human trafficking, terrorism and piracy at high sea. We need to make collective efforts to eliminate these threats for lasting peace in the region."

He extended warm welcome to the participating navies. He also valued participating nations for supporting Pakistan's resolve for ensuring peace in the region.
