An Egyptian military spokesman stated via Facebook that the training comes within the framework of the joint training plan for the armed forces with countries that share close ties with Cairo.

The primary stages of the exercises include a series of lectures aimed at the standardization of combat concepts and the exchange of training expertise, in addition to the implementation of training flights on the operational tasks of the participating forces.

Egypt recently completed joint maritime training exercises in the Mediterranean with Greek forces, with the participation of the Egyptian frigate Taba and the Greek warship HS HYDRA F-452.

The exercises aim to support efforts for security and maritime stability in the region, and to strengthen bilateral capabilities.
