An international small-scale aeronautical cooperation exercise with the code name ‘CYP/FRA-03/2022’ took place this week in the maritime region south of Limassol during the presence in the region of a French navy frigate.

According to an announcement from the National Guard General Staff, the exercise was designed by the Navy Command, in cooperation with the French navy.

Offshore patrol vessel Ioannides, patrol ships Tsomakis, Ammochostos, Georgiou and the French frigate FS Languedoc (D-653) participated.

The announcement said that the exercise took place in the framework of the international cooperation which the National Guard has developed with the armed forces of friendly countries, according to the defence ministry directives, and is considered to be very beneficial as it gives the opportunity to the staff of the National Guard navy units to exercise with their counterparts in the French navy, promoting training and interoperability and highlighting the relations between the two countries’ armed forces.
