Indian Navy seeks access to French base in Djibouti for refuelling


After operationalising the Mutual Logistics Support Agreement (MLSA) signed with France, the Indian Navy is looking for access to French naval base in Djibouti for refuelling and operational turnaround, defence sources said.

Next month, Indian Navy Mig-29K fighters and French Navy Rafale-M fighters operating off their aircraft carriers will exercise together off Goa coast in May under the bilateral exercise Varuna.

“We already have access to the French base on Reunion Island for refuelling. We are in discussion for using their base in Djibouti,” a defence source said on Thursday.
