Defence meeting

New Delhi, Feb. 6: A.K Antony today chaired a top review of the security situation ahead of a two-day visit to survey maritime exercises off the east coast.

The defence minister will be escorted by navy chief Admiral Nirmal Verma for “Theatre Level Operational Preparedness Exercise” or Tropex off Visakhapatnam on Tuesday and Wednesday. Tropex will bring together elements of the navy’s western, eastern and southern fleets.

Last year, a similar exercise on the western seaboard had to be interrupted in the wake of the war on Gaddafi’s Libya by Nato forces.
