Three Royal Thai naval ships are set to call at Myanmar Yangon’s Thilawa Port on Feb. 19 as part of the training program of the Royal Thai Naval Cadet Training Unit, official media quoted the Thai Embassy as reporting Sunday.

The three Thai naval ships carrying 695 naval cadets and commanding officers will spend five days at the Myanmar International Terminal Thilawa Port, during which the Thai naval cadets will perform various activities including taking part in a Myanmar-Thai naval friendship volleyball match at the Thuwuna Indoor Stadium in Yangon, blood donation and participation in an afforestation project at a public park of the Yangon municipality.

In September 2013, three Japanese naval ships had called at the Yangon Thilawa Port as part of its round-the-world voyage.

The voyage carrying 730 crews represented the first by the Japanese naval vessels of its kind to Myanmar since the end of the World War II.
