CAIRO (Xinhua) – Egyptian and French naval forces have carried out joint military drills across the Mediterranean Sea on Sunday.

According to the Egyptian military spokesman, Tamer el-Refaie, the training included the implementation of a realistic scenario of meeting the challenges facing maritime security, combating terrorism and protecting vital maritime targets such as gas and oil platforms against typical threats.

Egypt regularly holds military exercises with Arab, African and Western states to boost military collaboration and exchange military expertise.

In early November, Egyptian and French naval forces carried out joint military drills across the Mediterranean Sea. Egypt also started the “Arab Sheild 1” joint drills with forces from Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Kuwait and Jordan at Egypt’s Mohamed Naguib military base in the Mediterranean province of Matrouh, the largest base in the Middle East and Africa.
