The Indian Coast Guard will take part in an exercise with its Maldivian and Sri Lankan counterparts starting Monday in the Maldives. This is India's first defense engagement with Maldives after the new administration came to power there and openly said that it prefers India over China, India Today reported Indian Coast Guard chief Rajendra Singh would be present in Male along with Indian ships, including the advanced offshore patrol vessel ICGS Samar and fast patrol vessel ICGS Aryaman.
