    Ship IKAZUCHI arrived Karachi for 2 days port visit to take part Pre-AMAN activities.
    Pakistan Navy and Japanese Maritime Self Defence Force (JMSDF) enjoy long standing cordial relations. Both navies have been participating in Maritime Security Operations for a long time and conducting sea exercises at various occasions. JMSDF has also been a regular participant in AMAN series of exercises being conducted by Pakistan Navy since 2007. As part of AMAN-19 exercise, preliminary activities have commenced since January 19. In this backdrop, JMSDF ship IKAZUCHI arrived Karachi for 2 days port visit to take part Pre-AMAN activities.

    As part of AMAN-19 exercise, preliminary activities between Pakistan Navy and Japanese Maritime Self Defence Force (JMSDF) would commence from January 19. In this backdrop, JMSDF ship Ikazuchi arrived in Karachi for a two days port visit to take part in pre-AMAN activities.

    An impressive reception was arranged by Pakistan Navy to welcome JMSDF ship at Karachi Port, wherein senior officials of Pakistan Navy along with Japanese diplomats received the ship at Karachi Port. During the port visit, a number of training exercises, sports and leisure activities were conducted.

    On completion of the port visit, sea exercises were conducted between Pakistan Navy and JMSDF ships covering a wide range of naval operations aimed to enhance interoperability and collaborative efforts towards maritime security in the region.

    The visit of JMSDF ship to Pakistan will further strengthen mutual collaboration and enhance interoperability between two navies through the conduct of exercises and discussion on issues of common maritime interest.

    Pakistan Navy and JMSDF enjoy longstanding cordial relations. Both navies have been participating in Maritime Security Operations for a long time and conducting sea exercises on various occasions. JMSDF has also been a regular participant in AMAN series of exercises being conducted by Pakistan Navy since 2007.

    @Oscar looks like Japan has expanded its participation compared to the previous AMAN.

    This is a good example of a balanced foreign policy

    China is our biggest Allie and Japan comes and visits us

    friendly ties with everyone and most important Japan has given Pakistan many generous loans including help and funding for Kohat tunnel, that was when China was not too involved in Pakistan construction

    Probably unrelated, but the Kawasaki P-1 is a great Orion replacement.

    It'd be quite the conversation, Chinese subs and Japanese sub-hunters. I suspect the P-1's sensor suite would need to be from a third-party, like the Europeans.
