Indian Navy and Myanmar Navy on 16 February 2016 signed Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) for India-Myanmar Coordinated Patrol (IMCOR) at the Tri-Service Headquarters in Port Blair, Andaman and Nicobar Islands.

With this signing of SOP, Myanmar became the third country with which India has signed a formal agreement for maritime coordinated patrols.

The signing of SOP reflects growing naval interaction between India and Myanmar. It will facilitate smooth conduct of coordinated patrols between two neighbours that share a long maritime boundary in the strategically significant Andaman Sea and Bay of Bengal.

The SOP was signed during the closing ceremony of the 4th IMCOR that was successfully held by the two navies along the International Maritime Boundary Line (IMBL) in the Andaman Sea.

The 4-day long 4th IMCOR that began on 13 February 2016 and saw the participation of Indian Navy Ships Saryu and Bitra along with Myanmar Ships Aung Zeya and FAC 563.
