WASHINGTON (NNS) -- Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) Adm. John Richardson is scheduled to visit India, May 12 to 14, to meet with Chief of the Naval Staff Adm. Sunil Lanba and other senior Navy, military, and national security officials of India.

The visit aims to further strengthen the strategic partnership between the two navies by emphasizing the importance of information sharing and exchange.

"I am looking forward to this trip," said Richardson. “The strategic environment is becoming more complex and the nature of our shared challenges requires frequent discussion of our views of the maritime domain and how best our two navies can operate in line with our respective objectives.”

This is Richardson’s second visit to India as CNO.
