Colombo, Aug 10 (PTI) Pakistan Navy's sophisticated maritime security ship 'Kashmir' will arrive at Sri Lanka's Colombo Port on a four-day goodwill visit from Monday, it was announced here today.

During their stay at Colombo, the officers and men of the ship will take part in various professional activities with Sri Lankan Navy.

Pakistan Navy ships frequently pay port calls to Sri Lanka, as both countries enjoy warm diplomatic and strong military ties, the Pakistan High Commission said in a statement.

"Such interactions also demonstrate both navies' resolve to contribute towards achieving a more secure and conducive maritime environment which is essential for the regional peace, prosperity and harmony," it said.

The 1,500-tonne PMSS Kashmir, a 94-metre multipurpose patrol vessel is capable of undertaking multifarious missions such as surveillance, policing, anti-smuggling and anti-poaching operations, security and law-enforcement patrolling in maritime zones.

It is the fourth in a series of six multipurpose patrol vessels (MPVs) and was commissioned in the Chinese city of Guangzhou in July.
