“Exercises Komodo is the third multilateral naval exercise that will be hosted by Indonesia Navy,” said Navy public affairs officer Capt. Lued Lincuna.


The drills aim to strengthen the relationship of the participating navies and build a common understanding on humanitarian assistance and disaster response operations.
