    Naval cooperation between Japan and India increased in scope and complexity over the years. Advanced level of operations and exercises planned during JIMEX-20 are indicative of the continued upswing in Indo-Japanese defence relations and continued efforts by both governments to work closely for a more secure, open and inclusive global commons, in accordance with international regulations.

    This would further enhance the cooperation and mutual confidence between the two navies and fortify the long-standing bond of friendship between the two countries.
