Indian Navy deploys P-8I aircraft for Seychelles EEZ surveillance

Under a memorandum of understanding (MOU) signed between the Governments of India and the Seychelles, the maritime reconnaissance aircraft has been deployed since 20 March.

The aircraft will undertake surveillance operations as well facilitating a professional interaction between the aircrew and the Seychelles People's Defence Force (SPDF).

This deployment will help in preventing illegal activities and piracy, as well as contributing towards security and stability in the Indian Ocean region.
